San Francisco is a top holiday destination featuring scenic beauty and great ethnic and cultural diversity.
Do some cultural sightseeing at Castello di Amorosa and Old Sacramento. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Bodega Dunes and California State Railroad Museum. Venture out of the city with trips to Goat Rock Beach (in Jenner), Armstrong Redwood State Reserve (in Guerneville) and Mumm Napa (in Rutherford). The adventure continues: explore the striking landscape at Bodega Head and see the interesting displays at Cable Car Museum.
