What to See?
San Francisco is a confounding mix of quirkiness and luxury. Take the Cathedral of Christ the Light. You expect seriousness and silence, but instead you get music and events! At the Ripley’s Believe It Or Not Museum, you expect quirky…and get it. METREON is 350,000 square-feet of shopping, theatres, restaurants, and entertainment. Think you can cover it all in a day? Make a bit of extra money and play games 24/7 at the River Rock Casino. Or, marvel at the similitude between famous people and their wax replicas at the Wax Museum. Also take a tour of the Jelly Belly Candy factory. You’ll certainly leave with sweet memories.
San Francisco and creativity go hand-in-hand. Pick art for your home at the Weinstein Gallery that displays 20th century greats like Picasso, Miro, and Chagall. The STUDIO Gallery, one the other hand, showcases the work of local artists. You can face a serious decision-making crisis over what chocolates to pick at the Ghirardelli Chocolate Shop. But then again, if you think chocolates are irresistible, wait till you see the iridescent seashell jewellery at The Shell Cellar. Shopping for knick-knacks and gifts is fun at Urban Bazaar, a fair trade and locally handmade products store. You could also strike a good bargain at the bohemian Treasure Island Flea. Go find treasures, go!

Chateau Montelena Winery invites you to come get your wine cellar-fresh while The Lounge at Ritz Carlton calls you in for some tea-infused cocktails. The Rrazz Room at Hotel Nikko specializes in specialty cocktails and light food. And if it’s more cocktails that you want, head straight to the The Parlor.

If you want luxury, Grand Hyatt San Francisco is just the sort of place for that sort of thing, as is Courtyard by Marriott. Rated the No. 1 B&B in Carmel Valley, Acacia Lodge - Country Garden Inns is a B&B with a difference.

Where to Go?
Embark on a walking tour of the spectacular Mount Davidson. Presidio of San Francisco and Yosemite National Park are two national parks with breathtaking vistas, stunning natural features, water bodies, beautiful trails, and historic/architectural riches. Spend a day at the park and pack a picnic. It’s quite a refreshing thing to do.
Stroll through the rain forests of New Zealand, the Mediterranean region, or Central America at San Francisco Botanical Society. But if you’d rather get a shot of adrenaline, you’ll find it at Adventure Out, with a choice of rock-climbing, surfing, mountain biking and backpacking activities. And if those feet still long for some more walking, try the Chardonnay Golf Club, known for its lush vineyards and rolling hills.
AC Sailing takes you on an exhilarating two and a half hour spin on the bay. But if that’s not your kind of fun try Driven Raceway. It’s an indoor kart racing arena-Fun for the whole family. Crazy rides, top-rated arcades, an 18-hole mini-golf course, beach concerts, and bowling…do you need more reasons to visit the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk?
The Six Flags Discovery Kingdom combines an oceanarium with wildlife and a theme park. Yet another activity for the entire family! Visitors to San Francisco often get one of the San Fransisco Parlour Car Tours and drop in at picturesque places at their own pace. So if you don’t like sticking to tour guide timelines, you know what to do. Push up the Zen factor with traditional Thai massages at Suchada Thai Massage. You’ll especially want to head to this place after attempting a few adventure sports. Want a case of the blues? Find it at Biscuits and Blues, consistently awarded USA’s Blues Club of the Year. Laugh till you cry at Cobb’s Comedy Club and Punchline Comedy Club.
