Fisherman’s Wharf— One of San Francisco’s most popular destinations – from old shipyards to Boudin’s Bakery and the smell of fresh clam chowder, Fisherman’s Wharf has it all.

North Beach— Voted as one of the USA’s “ten great neighborhoods”, North Beach is best known as the home of Little Italy. From delicious restaurants to authentic sidewalk cafes and bakeries, you will feel the charm of San Francisco as soon as you arrive.

Chinatown— Boasting the largest Chinatown in the United States, this 24-block mecca is bustling with energy, amazing food, and unique and colorful shops that give this area its charm.

*City Hall— This beautiful Beaux-Arts monument epitomizes the high-minded American Renaissance of the late 18th and early 19th centuries. The site of Joe Dimaggio and Marilyn Monroe’s marriage in 1954.

*Mission District— Known for its prominent and colorful mural installations, delicious food, and vibrant art and music scene, The Mission embodies the culture of old and new San Francisco.

Castro— One of the most vibrant neighborhoods in the United States. Colorful bars and restaurants line the streets with the historic Castro Theater overlooking the area that Harvey Milk once called home.

*Twin Peaks— Featuring a panoramic view of all of San Francisco, Twin Peaks offers one of the best perspectives of the downtown skyline, surrounding hills and vistas (weather permitting).

*Haight Ashbury— The origin of the hippie culture and the birthplace of the “Summer of Love.” From the stunning Painted Ladies to the homes of music’s favorite 60’s bands, this district started the counter-culture movement across the USA.

Golden Gate Bridge— Declared “one of the 10 wonders of the modern world,” the Golden Gate Bridge is one of the most recognized symbols of San Francisco. Simply stunning!
