San Francisco

City by the Bay

San Francisco is a top holiday destination featuring scenic beauty and great ethnic and cultural diversity.
Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Alcatraz Island and Golden Gate Bridge. Grace Cathedral and SS Jeremiah O'Brien will appeal to history buffs. And it doesn't end there: see the interesting displays at Walt Disney Family Museum, take in the local highlights with Walking tours, hike along Lands End, and learn the secrets of beer at a beer tour and tasting.

Plan a trip to San Francisco easily and quickly by telling Inspirock to suggest an itinerary.

Stockholm, Sweden to San Francisco is an approximately 16.5-hour flight. You'll gain 9 hours traveling from Stockholm to San Francisco due to the time zone difference. In June, plan for daily highs up to 25°C, and evening lows to 15°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 1st (Wed) so you can travel to Santa Maria.

More than the country of car-packed streets seen in TV shows and movies, the United States of America is a complex and diverse home to over 300 million people living in a wide range of landscapes and climates. From its big-city skyscrapers to its sprawling natural parks, the country's ''melting pot'' combines many ethnic groups that share a strong sense of national identity despite their cultural differences. A country of road trips and big blue skies, the United States harbors orderly cities filled with restaurants, parks, museums, and innumerable sightseeing opportunities, as well as pristine natural areas perfect for a holiday in the great outdoors. To see as much as you can of this diverse land quickly, drive over some of the more than 6 million km (4 million mi) of highways leading through deserts, mountain peaks, fertile fields, and giant urban centers.
