San Francisco is a top holiday destination featuring scenic beauty and great ethnic and cultural diversity.
Your day-by-day itinerary now includes International Art Museum of America, Dolphin & Whale Watching, Aquarium of the Bay, and other attractions you added.

And it doesn't end there: snap pictures at Golden Gate Bridge, don't miss a visit to Ferry Building Marketplace, step off the mainland to explore Alcatraz Island, and get great views at Twin Peaks.
