San Francisco is a top holiday destination featuring scenic beauty and great ethnic and cultural diversity.
You've now added Painted Ladies to your itinerary. When in San Francisco, make a side trip to see Muir Woods National Monument in Mill Valley, approximately 46 minutes away. There's much more to do: step off the mainland to explore Alcatraz Island, examine the collection at Cable Car Museum, explore the activities along San Francisco Bay, and take in the awesome beauty at Twin Peaks.

Plan my San Francisco trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

The Route module shows you all the different ways you can get to San Francisco. In July in San Francisco, expect temperatures between 73°F during the day and 57°F at night. You will have some time to spend on the 23rd (Tue) before leaving for Yosemite National Park.

Massive granite mountains, towering waterfalls, groves of Giant Sequoia trees, and wilderness as far as the eye can see distinguish the landscape of Yosemite National Park.
Yosemite National Park is known for nature, trails, scenic drive, museums, and historic sites. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: explore the striking landscape at Glacier Point, admire the sheer force of Yosemite Falls, hike along Panorama Trail, and make a trip to Tuolumne Grove of Giant Sequoias.
