Why go to San Francisco

Think of San Francisco and a few iconic images probably spring to mind: the ‘international orange’ steel towers of the mighty Golden Gate Bridge, the vintage-style cable cars, the infamous fort of Alcatraz – San Fran certainly isn't short of famous sights. But there’s much more to the city than big-hitting attractions.

A huge part of San Francisco’s appeal is its neighbourhoods of street murals and mosaic staircases, quality food trucks and quirky coffee shops. Wander through historic Chinatown, where the fortune cookie is said to have been invented, stroll through grassy Dolores Park and read the plaques that honour LGBTQ activists along the Rainbow Honor Walk in The Castro, one of the world’s most famous gay neighbourhoods.

For food, the city is a dream. San Francisco has one of the highest numbers of restaurants per capita in the USA. Its culinary scene is the stuff of legend, with the sparkling bay and fertile hills around the city providing an abundance of locally sourced ingredients. As you might expect from the original hippie city, there's a focus on organic, healthy and environmentally friendly produce, alongside all kinds of international cuisine, from Mexican to Peruvian, Japanese to Italian.

Extend your trip by getting out of the city to discover the great Californian outdoors, whether that's surfing off Ocean Beach or exploring Lands End coastal park. Some all-inclusive San Francisco holidays have excursions out to national parks and beauty spots including Point Reyes, Pinnacles and Yosemite, too. But if you prefer to stay in the city, San Francisco has its fair share of stunning natural views.

*ATOL (Air Travel Organiser's Licence) is a financial protection scheme for package holidays: It provides support to consumers in the event their holiday provider collapses. Booking with an ATOL holder ensures that you won't be left out of pocket and you won't be left stranded abroad. All package holidays compared using TravelSupermarket are protected by ATOL.

ABTA (Association of British Travel Agents) offers similar cover for packages booked with its members. However, while ATOL predominantly covers flight-based packages, ABTA covers non-flight based holidays (such as rail and cruise) and linked travel arrangements. If you are unsure whether or not your trip is covered by ABTA, check with your provider.
