San Francisco is a top holiday destination featuring scenic beauty and great ethnic and cultural diversity.
Relax by the water at Bodega Head and Pomponio State Beach. Get some cultural insight at Alcatraz Island and Union Square. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around San Francisco: The Barlow (in Sebastopol), Castello di Amorosa (in Calistoga) and Powell's Sweet Shoppe - Windsor (in Windsor). The adventure continues: buy something for everyone on your list at Ferry Building Marketplace, make a trip to Ghirardelli Square, shop like a local with City Lights Booksellers, and take a leisurely stroll along Fisherman's Wharf.

Vancouver is a city on the north bank of the Columbia River in the U.S. We've included these beaches for you: Haystack Rock and Cannon Beach. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Tillamook Country Smoker and Astoria Sunday Market. Venture out of the city with trips to Seaside (The Buzz on Broadway, Beach Books, & more), Hood River (Apple Valley Country Store, Port of Hood River, & more) and Cannon Beach (Bruce's Candy Kitchen, Cannon Beach Farmers Market, & more). And it doesn't end there: look for all kinds of wild species at Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area, look for gifts at Sewn Loverly, contemplate the waterfront views at Columbia River Maritime Museum, and admire the sheer force of Multnomah Falls.
