Not only is there so much to see and do here but it’s also easy to get around, whether it’s on foot or by using the famous cable cars. San Francisco has something to offer everyone and is not to be missed if you take a trip to California. Whatever you are into, you’re sure to love a stay in San Francisco!

Top 5 Experiences

  • Cycle or walk the Golden Gate Bridge for spectacular views of the area. This famous bridge spanning over one mile in length is sure to impress.
  • San Francisco is home to the largest Chinatown outside of Asia, so grab those chopsticks, wander the streets and try something new.
  • In the summer, Alcatraz sells out quickly, so make sure to book your tickets well in advance.
  • Both Sonoma County and Napa Valley offer something special for wine lovers, so try and make time for both destinations.
  • With a great public transport system, you really don't need a car in San Francisco. Hit the pavements or jump on an iconic cable car and find the next cool area.
