San Francisco is a top holiday destination featuring scenic beauty and great ethnic and cultural diversity.
Escape the urban bustle at Dolphin & Whale Watching and Alcatraz Island. Museum-lovers will get to explore Exploratorium and de Young Museum. Change things up with these side-trips from San Francisco: Valley of the Moon Pottery & North Eagle Gallery (in Santa Rosa), Castello di Amorosa (in Calistoga) and Bodega Dunes (in Bodega). Next up on the itinerary: get a taste of the local shopping with Ferry Building Marketplace, wander the streets of Union Square, see the interesting displays at Musee Mecanique, and take a leisurely stroll along Fisherman's Wharf.

To find maps, other places to visit, traveler tips, and more tourist information, refer to the San Francisco trip itinerary planner .

In May, plan for daily highs up to 69°F, and evening lows to 53°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 8th (Wed) to allow enough time to travel back home.
