Information about flights to San Francisco
San Francisco is a tourist favourite and has been a popular American destination for years. When you consider the Californian climate, impressive skyline and iconic landmarks like Alcatraz and the Golden Gate Bridge, it's hardly any surprise. Book with lastminute.com and you could make great savings on your San Francisco flights.
In the city
There are loads of great activities to get your teeth stuck into on your trip to San Francisco, from sightseeing to chilling out on the beach. There are also tons of shops and a great nightlife. A good way to kick things off is a trip to Fisherman's Wharf on the Northern Waterfront. This city favourite serves up famous clam chowder in the day and has great ice cream to try when you're taking an evening stroll along the water. Whilst you're there, why not pick up some souvenirs? The shops here have everything from deep-sea fishing gear to shaving foam.
Pier 39 is another top tourist destination. On your way you'll pass the Aquarium of the Bay, where you can take the kids for an exciting afternoon amongst the North American underwater inhabitants, plus a few from far off parts of the planet too. From Pier 39 you'll have plenty of opportunities to take day trips and tours to see a little bit more of San Francisco. Some great activities can be the Adventure Cat sailing charters that will show you the bay from the waves, and Blazing Saddles bike rentals and tours for a trip over the bridge to view the city skyline as it was supposed to be seen.
Sights of San Francisco
The Golden Gate Bridge is the big attraction here, but it remains mainly functional. To really make the most of it jump on one of the bay tours. On a clear day a trip through the water will give you a chance to get plenty of impressive snaps of the bridge itself and of Alcatraz Island too.
Within the city, Golden Gate Park is over 1000 acres, shaped like an almost perfect rectangle. Visit the park for a walk or take some food along and enjoy a picnic. Once it's time to leave, hop on one of the iconic San Francisco cable cars that are still manually operated today. Once a cable car reaches the end of its path the staff turns it around on an impressive stone circle carved into the ground. Go along and see how they're operated.
A bus tour is probably the best way to take everything in, and you'll struggle to catch it all in one day. Join up with a guide and see Lombard Street and Coit Tower for yourself, and learn something interesting about the city as you do it.
San Francisco is a great location, and you'll find it easy to fill your time with new and exciting things on your lastminute.com holiday here.
