San Francisco is a top holiday destination featuring scenic beauty and great ethnic and cultural diversity.

There's much more to do: take in the waterfront at Fisherman's Wharf, contemplate the long history of Golden Gate Bridge, see the interesting displays at Cable Car Museum, and get curious at Exploratorium.
