This beautiful, beloved Northern California destination serves up the very best of everything a group of happy wanderers could dream of in a culturally diverse, eclectic and entertaining “big-bite” – sized venue. Just 6 miles square, it’s entirely possible to knock out your to-do-list with a long weekend in this enchanting city of clement weather, morning-fogged vistas, hills with names and watercolor streets in historic neighborhoods. By day, the rhythmic whack-clang of cable car bells and endless conversations of shorebirds mesmerize; come sundown, a vivid nightlife courts your more adventurous side. Eat and drink to your heart’s content – San Francisco boasts more restaurants per capita than ANY other city in the nation. Wander Fisherman’s Wharf and Pier 39 – order up a steamy sourdough chowder bowl or fresh fish and chips and check out the colonies of lumbering, vocal sea lions wriggling on the docks. Grab a cappuccino to go and catch your breath on a local beach; experience a sweet San Francisco sunrise or the twinkling city nightlights from Twin Peaks. Lose yourself and find great food and fun in her bustling, beguiling Chinatown – discover hidden treasure and ancient mystery at every turn! Browse the Ferry Building Marketplace, sample amongst the drum circles of Alemany Market – the people’s market – or venture into the Heart of the City Market for handmade green chili tamales hot off the truck! Stalk the wild parrots of Telegraph Hill and delight in the view from the top of serpentine Lombard Street; explore the world’s only rainforest-aquarium-planetarium-museum and meet the resident bison herd at urban respite Golden Gate Park. Hop a ferry across the frigid Bay and head for Alcatraz- the abandoned compound that once harbored notoriously incorrigible criminal masterminds – do you believe the restless, evil specters of long-dead prisoners traverse the silent grounds?
