San Francisco Holiday

What are the best places to visit in San Francisco?

We've got all the red hot sightseeing tips for your forthcoming trip to San Francisco. Grab your planner and get ready to start working on that itinerary.

With such a variety of iconic attractions in one place, you'll never have a boring moment in San Francisco! First things first, make sure you get some selfies in front of Golden Gate Bridge and Pier 39. When you've finished with those, you'll still have the University of California San Francisco and Palace of Fine Arts to check out!

Home to attractions like Twin Peaks and the Exploratorium, there will never be a boring moment in this exhilarating metropolis. After you've finished looking around those, squeeze in a bit more sightseeing at the California Academy of Sciences and Golden Gate Park.

Ready to escape the mainland for a bit? You'll find there's a range of cool sights to see just over the water on Alcatraz Island. Adventurers in this destination have a great range of options. Soap, shampoo and toothpaste are some of the supplies you need while travelling. But — if you forget to pack your toiletries, you'll probably find what you need at Ghirardelli Square. Still have some time to spare? Interested in the extraordinary marine world? Encounter colourful animals and learn about the wonders of our planet's vast blue waters at Aquarium of the Bay.
