San Francisco is a top holiday destination featuring scenic beauty and great ethnic and cultural diversity.
Escape the urban bustle at Fishing Charters & Tours and Alcatraz Island. Kids will appreciate attractions like Dolphin & Whale Watching and Safari West. When in San Francisco, make a side trip to see San Pedro Valley Park in Pacifica, approximately 38 minutes away. There's much more to do: take in the views from Golden Gate Bridge, identify plant and animal life at Don Edwards San Francisco Bay Wildlife Refuge, examine the collection at Exploratorium, and tour the pleasant surroundings at Fort Funston National Park.
