    Things to Do in San Francisco

    San Francisco has many famous landmarks. Here are a few of our favorites: Alcatraz Island,site of the infamous former federal penitentiary, is a must-see. It's accessible by ferry and open for tours every day except Christmas, New Year's Day and Thanksgiving. The Golden Gate Bridge is one of the world's most iconic landmarks and every bit as impressive in person as it is in photos. San Francisco's Chinatown is the oldest Chinatown in North America and the largest Chinese community outside of Asia. From the elderly people doing tai chi in the parks to the colorful shops selling fun souvenirs, Chinatown definitely merits exploring. If you enjoy public parks visit Golden Gate Park, the third most visited park in the U.S. It has miles of paths for you to wander along the grass and lakes. Also, it is home to a number of popular attractions, including the California Academy of Sciences, the deYoung Museum and the Conservatory of Flowers. And what trip to San Francisco could be complete without a visit to Haight Ashbury? At the epicenter of 1960s San Francisco counterculture, the area today has many cafes, shops and colorful Victorian houses.

    San Francisco Day Trips

    There are a number of excellent day trips from San Francisco. Napa County, the world-renowned wine region is just an hour northeast of San Francisco. About 2 hours from the city is another wonderful wine-producing region, Sonoma County. Those who prefer to drive south should head to Santa Cruz, a beautiful coastal university town popular with surfers and home of the Santa Cruz Boardwalk. Less than an hour south, you'll find Monterey County. The drive from San Francisco along Highway 1 is stunning, especially if you continue your trip down the coast, to Big Sur - among the most stunning coastlines in the world.
