What to expect on your San Francisco holiday
San Francisco’s reputation as a chilled out city stretches back to the Sixties, when hippies ruled the roost. Today, San Francisco holidays still embody this laidback spirit – but there’s so much more to it than that.
A holiday to San Francisco is all about variety. You’ve got beaches, surfing and sea lions – all alongside the city’s iconic steep hills, candy-coloured houses and brightly-painted street cars. Diverse San Francisco boasts historical spots and modern bars in equal measure. You can spend a morning cycling over the Golden Gate Bridge, then pop down to Pier 39 and enjoy a bowl of clam chowder, as the local sea lions lollop along the boardwalk. In the afternoon, why not take a boat trip out to Alcatraz and find out all about the world’s most famous prison? Or shop ‘til you drop in Union Square, where you’ll find famous names like Macy’s, Saks and Chanel.
In the evenings, you’ll get to discover just how diverse this city really is. You can eat your way round the world, no problem. Enjoy a pre-dinner drink in an Irish bar, then feast on a delicious meal in your restaurant of choice – you’ll find Chinese, Italian, Japanese and Thai cuisines – then grab a gigantic ice cream in a traditional American diner.
