Discover the architecture, history, and geography that sets San Fran apart!

About the Destination

San Francisco is known for its hilly terrain, rows upon rows of Victorian architecture, the hippy movement, and a vibrant LGBTQ+ community. It’s also home to the Seventh Wonder of the Modern World; the Golden Gate Bridge!

In San Francisco, discover world-renowned authors including Jack Kerouac, Philip K. Dick, and Amy Tam, or tour the Beat Museum. Then, hop onto the Magic Bus tour to transport yourself to 1960’s San Francisco, the decade of peace, love and freedom.

San Francisco thrives on its Bay, so walk over to Fish Alley to see active fishing boats, and eat in the best seafood restaurants in Fisherman’s Wharf to get a taste of the day’s freshest catch. Hop on a cable car that will take you to Chinatown and wind you way down Lombard Street, a street as crooked as the famous residents you will learn about on your glamorous cruise to Alcatraz.
