San Francisco is a top holiday destination featuring scenic beauty and great ethnic and cultural diversity.
Take a break from the city and head to Alcatraz Island and Cowell Ranch State Beach. Visit Golden Gate Bridge and Filbert Street Stairs for their historical value. Venture out of the city with trips to Armstrong Redwood State Reserve (in Guerneville), Santa Rosa (Safari West & Pepperwood Preserve) and Moss Landing (Dolphin & Whale Watching & Elkhorn Slough National Estuarine Research Reserve). And it doesn't end there: stroll through Sonoma Coast State Beach, take a leisurely stroll along Fisherman's Wharf, stroll around Golden Gate Park, and enjoy the sand and surf at Dunes Beach.
