It isn't only Tony Bennett who left his heart in San Francisco - plenty of other people have too. Frisco's unique charm acts as a giant magnet, making people yearn to come back. It could be its iconic landmarks, like the majestic Golden Gate Bridge. It could be its trademark switch-back streets that put you straight into the car chase from Bullitt. It could be its off-beat culture and anything-goes attitude.  But whatever it is, holidays to San Francisco, California are guaranteed to leave you wanting more.

This is a great city simply to wander in. There's a colourful patchwork of neighbourhoods, each with its own personality, so it's a delight to meander through them, soaking up the sights and the atmosphere. Nob Hill oozes money and class; Mission is where you'll find hipsters, artists and cool bars; yachts bob on their moorings down at The Marina; the Haight retains its edge of Sixties counter-culture; and North Beach channels Italian bakeries and a boho vibe.

There's plenty to do, too. Stride out along red walkways of the Golden Gate Bridge for stupendous views (traditional Bay fog permitting!). Ride a clanking cable car up a steep gradient then find out how it all works at the Cable Car Museum. Sample cutting-edge contemporary art at the Museum of Modern Art. Go shopping in Union Square. Or simply sit with a coffee at a café in North Beach watching the wonderful San Francisco world go by.

Along the way you'll want to find time to sample the city's eclectic restaurant and bar scene. For perfect stir-fries and dim sum, where better than Chinatown? Elsewhere you'll find every sort of cuisine imaginable, while the range of micro-breweries, cocktail lounges, cabarets,  Broadway shows and drag acts goes on and on. On holidays to San Francisco, anything - and everything - goes.​

As if you could ask for anything more from a city, San Francisco is also perfectly situated to act as the gateway to the West Coast, why not consider pairing it with another dream destination on a twin centre holiday, or even more than one destinations on a multi centre holiday. You can also explore our other popular USA holiday destinations including Las Vegas, New York, Orlando, Los Angeles and Hawaii.

Alcatraz

Alcatraz prison

A ferry trip across the Bay to America's most notorious prison is a must. Learn all about the history behind this high-security island prison where legendary criminals like Al 'Scarface' Capone and Robert Stroud, the 'Birdman of Alcatraz'  were locked up. See the remaining buildings, spot some amazing birdlife and admire the views back across the Bay.


Shop Till You Drop

It's a good idea to bring a spare suitcase on holidays to San Francisco, because the shopping is irresistible. Union Square is the place for big names and department stores, plus there's a Westfield mall nearby; Fillmore Street has ritzy beauty retailers and interior design stores; Haight Street has anarchist bookshops and funky boutiques; North Beach is the place for vintage; and Mission does hip and off-beat.


Take In The View

In this city of over 40 hills, there are some superb views to drink in. Take the cable car to the top of Nob Hill; climb the garden-strewn steps of Filbert Street to the summit of Telegraph Hill; ascend the 210-foot Coit Tower; and at each point marvel at the stupendous spread of the city and the Bay laid out below.


Festival Time

This being San Francisco, there are some weird and wonderful events to enjoy. Take your pick from the naked bike ride; Fiesta Filipina; the Waterfront Festival (complete with fireworks on 4 July);  Sketchfest comedy festival; Chinese New Year celebrations; the St Patrick's Day Parade; jazz, blues and rock festivals; and of course the LGBT Pride Parade.


Family Fun

As if all those museums and views weren't enough, kids will love Fisherman's Wharf, where they can meet sea lions at Pier 39, jump about on trampolines, eat ice cream, ride the 7D Experience and board some historic ships.
