San Francisco is a top holiday destination featuring scenic beauty and great ethnic and cultural diversity.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at California State Railroad Museum and Old Sacramento. Your inner history buff will appreciate Alcatraz Island and SS Jeremiah O'Brien. There's still lots to do: engage your brain at Exploratorium, examine the collection at Musee Mecanique, snap pictures at Golden Gate Bridge, and take in the pleasant sights at Fisherman's Wharf.
