City by the Bay

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 Strawberry Hill. Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at Union Square and Ferry Building Marketplace. There's much more to do: take in the waterfront at Fisherman's Wharf, see the interesting displays at de Young Museum, enjoy the sand and surf at Fort Funston National Park, and get curious at Exploratorium.
