San Francisco is a top holiday destination featuring scenic beauty and great ethnic and cultural diversity.
Get some cultural insight at Castello di Amorosa and Francis Ford Coppola Winery. Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at Mumm Napa and Moraga Art Gallery. Change things up with these side-trips from San Francisco: Bolinas Beach (in Bolinas), Muir Woods National Monument (in Mill Valley) and Point Reyes National Seashore (Point Reyes Lighthouse & Tule Elk Preserve). There's lots more to do: look for all kinds of wild species at Marin Headlands, examine the collection at California State Railroad Museum, immerse yourself in nature at Armstrong Redwood State Reserve, and admire the masterpieces at Crocker Art Museum.

For other places to visit, traveler tips, where to stay, and more tourist information, read San Francisco trip itinerary site.

The size, shape, and color of Grand Canyon National Park combine to leave an impression on visitors as deep as the canyon itself.
Escape the urban bustle at Yavapai Point and Point Imperial Drive. Discover out-of-the-way places like Lipan Point and Navajo Point. There's still lots to do: get great views at Guano Point, make a trip to Powell Point, admire the landmark architecture of Grand Canyon Railway Depot, and engage your brain at Yavapai Geology Museum.
