This beautiful and beloved Northern California destination serves up the very best of everything a visitor could dream of in a wonderfully culturally diverse, eclectic and entertaining “big-bite”-sized venue. Just six miles square, it’s entirely possible you can check off most of your group’s fabulous and fun to-do-list with just a few days in this happy city of clement weather, stunningly surreal, morning-fogged Bay vistas, hills with names, watercolor streets in historic neighborhoods, crazy-to-cool ethnic celebrations and the rhythmic whack-clang of cable car bells.
San Francisco boasts more restaurants per capita than ANY other in the nation! Sight-see well-loved, bustling tourist attractions like Fisherman’s Wharf and Pier 39-grab a steamy-hot and delicious fresh clam chowder sourdough bowl or an order of “so fresh it was swimming this morning” fish and chips; don’t forget to check out the colonies of lumbering and vocal sea lions flopping about the docks! Order up an excellent morning coffee or cappuccino to go and catch your breath at one of the several pristine local beaches; take in a sweet San Francisco sunrise or the magic of city nightlights from Twin Peaks. Lose yourself and find great fun and food in her colorful, culture-rich Chinatown-discover hidden treasure and new mystery at every turn.
Peruse wonderful fresh marketplaces teeming with great eateries and endless fresh produce and food stands-visit the magnificent waterfront Ferry Building, wander and sample amongst the drum circles of Alemany Market or venture into the Heart of the City Market for fresh green chili tamales hot off the truck! Stalk the wild parrots of Telegraph Hill, or delight in the stunning view from the top of snake-curvy Lombard Street. Explore the world’s only rainforest-aquarium-planetarium-museum and check out the resident bison herd at Golden Gate Park.
