San Francisco is a top holiday destination featuring scenic beauty and great ethnic and cultural diversity.
Kids will appreciate attractions like Exploratorium and Japanese Tea Garden. There's much more to do: contemplate the long history of Golden Gate Bridge, buy something for everyone on your list at Ferry Building Marketplace, walk around Golden Gate Park, and get curious at California Academy of Sciences.

For photos, other places to visit, where to stay, and more tourist information, refer to the San Francisco road trip planning tool .

Toronto, Canada to San Francisco is an approximately 9-hour flight. You can also do a combination of train, car, and flight; or drive.
