San Francisco is a top holiday destination featuring scenic beauty and great ethnic and cultural diversity.
You've now added Muir Woods National Monument to your itinerary. Shop till you drop at Union Square and Ferry Plaza Farmers Market. Do some cultural sightseeing at Alcatraz Island and Twin Peaks. Step out of San Francisco with an excursion to Fitzgerald J V Marine Reserve in Moss Beach--about 40 minutes away. There's still lots to do: identify plant and animal life at Marin Headlands, take in nature's colorful creations at Conservatory of Flowers, snap pictures at Golden Gate Bridge, and buy something for everyone on your list at Ghirardelli Square.
