San Francisco is a top holiday destination featuring scenic beauty and great ethnic and cultural diversity.
Your itinerary includes some good beach time at Fort Funston National Park and Big Basin Redwoods State Park. Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at Ferry Building Marketplace and Oxbow Public Market. Change things up with these side-trips from San Francisco: Napa (Wine Tours & Tastings & The Hess Collection Winery), Fitzgerald J V Marine Reserve (in Moss Beach) and Miramar Beach (in Half Moon Bay). The adventure continues: explore the wealth of natural beauty at Alcatraz Island, wander the streets of Union Square, get great views at Twin Peaks, and take a leisurely stroll along Fisherman's Wharf.

To find more things to do, maps, traveler tips, and tourist information, read our San Francisco travel itinerary creator.

Expect a daytime high around 58°F in December, and nighttime lows around 45°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 1st (Mon) early enough to travel back home.
