San Francisco

San Francisco is a top holiday destination featuring scenic beauty and great ethnic and cultural diversity.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Muir Woods National Monument and Armstrong Redwood State Reserve. Alcatraz Island and Fort Point will appeal to history buffs. You'll find plenty of places to visit near San Francisco: Dolphin & Whale Watching (in Moss Landing), Santa Rosa (Charles M. Schulz Museum & Safari West) and Bodega Bay (Pinnacle Gulch Coastal Access Trail, Bodega Head, &more). Spend the 16th (Mon) exploring nature at San Francisco Maritime National Historical Park. Dedicate the 21st (Sat) to wine at some of the top wineries in the area. There's much more to do: see the interesting displays at California State Railroad Museum, delve into the lush surroundings at Tall Trees Grove, get in on the family fun at Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk, and walk around Golden Gate Park.
