San Francisco

— 4 nights

City by the Bay

San Francisco is a top holiday destination featuring scenic beauty and great ethnic and cultural diversity.
Get some historical perspective at Alcatraz Island and Golden Gate Bridge. Get some cultural insight at Mumm Napa and Fisherman's Wharf. Venture out of the city with trips to Hendry Ranch Wines (in Napa) and Cliff Lede Vineyards (in Yountville). There's still lots to do: engage your brain at Exploratorium, stop by Chinatown, steep yourself in history at SS Jeremiah O'Brien, and wander the streets of SoMa.
