About San Francisco

One of the most popular travel destinations in the USA, San Francisco is a city packed full of things to do and see. Whether you are planning a short city break or a family vacation in San Francisco, there will be something for everyone to do.

There are many wonderful attractions for you to see in San Francisco, none more famous than the Golden Gate Bridge, the city’s instantly recognisable landmark. Another popular destination is Golden Gate Park which is bigger than New York’s Central Park and visited by some 13 million people every year.

The world famous Alcatraz Island is located in San Francisco bay and home to perhaps the most famous prison in the world. The island is now a US national park and can be accessed by ferry.

San Francisco is also home to some of the world’s finest restaurants and if world cuisine is your thing, be sure to visit the Fisherman’s Wharf and sample the array of seafood on offer. Fisherman’s Wharf extends to the popular Pier 39 where sea lions become the star of the show for visitors and locals alike.

No trip to San Francisco would be complete without taking a cable car ride up and down the steep hills of the city, many of which have featured in movies throughout the years. Finally, if you’re looking for a city break with plenty of shops, then look no further than Union Square, San Francisco’s popular shopping district.
