San Francisco in a popular tourist destination on the western coast of the United States. Known for its liberal ideals, its hippie culture of the sixties, its Peace movement and Gay Rights movements, it attracts a high proportion of young adults. It is a county as well as a city, occupying an area of almost fifty square miles on a hilly peninsula that has the Pacific on one side and San Francisco Bay on the other. San Francisco is a charming, friendly, multicultural city with much to recommend it. It offers many sightseeing opportunities and has open spaces for those who enjoy the great outdoors. The best and cheapest way to see the city is to buy a City Pass. This gives unlimited access to the deisel and electric trolley buses, the cable cars and the street cars. It also gives access to the California Academy of Sciences which is a planetarium-aquarium-rainforest-living museum; the Blue and Gold Fleet Bay Cruise, a trip around Alcatraz and under the Golden Gate Bridge; admission to the Aquarium of the Bay or Monteret Bay aquarium; the Exploritorium an interactive museum ideal for children.
The City Pass does indeed offer value for money. You can get it at a reduced price if you buy on line prior to travel. For those who enjoy the open air, a visit to the Golden Gate Park is a must. See the Japanese Tea Garden, the flower conservatory, the historic windmills or rent a boat or a bicycle. There are numerous other attractions which include Madame Tussauds, the famous Ripley's Believe it or Not museum, the zoo, the jelly Bean factory which is a children's favourite, and many more. Your trip here can be as active or as relaxed as you wish as there are beaches and parks where you can lie back and enjoy the sunshine. Be warned though, there is a regular on shore breeze so you'll need to find a sheltered spot. Both Ocean Beach and Baker Beach are popular choices.
With a climate that varies little between summer and winter, holidays here can be enjoyed at any time of year. Summers are rarely too hot and winters are rarely cold.
