San Francisco is a top holiday destination featuring scenic beauty and great ethnic and cultural diversity.
Do some cultural sightseeing at Union Square and Alcatraz Island. Do your shopping at Ferry Building Marketplace and Ghirardelli Square. Venture out of the city with trips to Wine Tours & Tastings (in Napa), Rockaway Beach (in Pacifica) and Fitzgerald J V Marine Reserve (in Moss Beach). And it doesn't end there: kick back and relax at Fort Funston National Park, tour the pleasant surroundings at China Beach, take a stroll through SoMa, and step aboard SS Jeremiah O'Brien.
