San Francisco is a top holiday destination featuring scenic beauty and great ethnic and cultural diversity.
Your day-by-day itinerary now includes International Art Museum of America, Dolphin & Whale Watching, Aquarium of the Bay, and other attractions you added. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Twin Peaks and Muir Woods National Monument.

And it doesn't end there: snap pictures at Golden Gate Bridge, take a stroll through Fisherman's Wharf, contemplate the waterfront views at San Francisco Bay, and browse the different shops at Ferry Building Marketplace.
