San Francisco Holidays

Lauded, Reviled, Admired, Feared…the United States of America overwhelms with a splurge of sentiments but even that doesn’t stop this nation from being a truly terrific holiday destination! Travellers who are keen on holidays packages to the USA often have a collage of images embedded in their minds that they wish to espy - row of high risers soaring over stretches of urbanity, long winding highways piercing arid deserts and scores of sun-drenched beaches hosting parade of fun! Then there are engineering feats that have come to symbolise not only the culture of USA but also stand as emblems of the collective consciousness of people world over - Brooklyn Bridge, the Empire State Building, the Grand Canyon and of course the Statue of Liberty! USA sure is a phenomenal holiday destination that greets vacationers with a fantastic mix of ethnicities, picturesque vistas, seductive culinary knowhow and a whole lot of other stuff.

San Francisco, California travel guide

  • San Francisco is a peninsula washed by the Pacific Ocean. It is said to be the crossroads to everywhere, with 16 million visitors every year. San Francisco's charm lies in its neighborhoods, which give the city its utter uniqueness. Union Square is in the heart of the city and the hub of the shopping district. North Beach is known for its Italian heritage, bakeries and restaurants. The Marina District has some of the most elegant homes in San Francisco, and the waterfront is where shopping and dining are at their best. The Haight, famous for the intersection of Haight and Ashbury Streets, is the location of former homes of Counterculture icons like the Jefferson Airplane, Janis Joplin and the Grateful Dead. Unique shops, music, bookstores and cafe's line many of the Haight's streets. Alamo Square is best known for the beautiful turn-of-the century Victorian homes called the "Painted Ladies." SoMa (South of Market) includes unique nightclubs, restaurants and museums. The Castro District has the highest concentration of gay/lesbian population of any city in America. Steep streets and brightly painted Victorian houses, imaginative boutiques and bars, and the largest Gay Pride Parade are found in this area. Yerba Buena Gardens is the cultural heart of the city, where community, entertainment, arts and pop culture come together. San Francisco's climate is influenced by the cool currents of the Pacific Ocean. Days are generally cool year-round, and summer days are often foggy in the afternoon. Average summer temperatures range from 59-79ºF (15-24ºC) and winter from 50-59ºF (10-15ºC).

  • San Francisco is a diverse destination, encompassing nature, history, art, science and some of the most beautiful scenery along the West Coast of the United States. Pop culture and old traditions are neatly packed into this one fabulous city. Wander around the diverse neighborhoods, cross the Golden Gate Bridge, ride the cable cars and explore everything San Francisco has to offer.

  • With over 3,300 restaurants, San Francisco is one of the best cities in the world for dining. Food from every corner of the world can be found here, from Afghan to Tibetan, Bolivian to Russian. From the small corner cafe's to elegant four-star restaurants, there is something for everyone. San Francisco Sourdough Bread and Dungeness Crab are two "absolute musts" for visitors to try and enjoy. Furthermore, San Francisco's close proximity to the Napa-Sonoma wine country ensures the availability of excellent California wines.

    Scala's Bistro

    This upscale eatery combines Old World ambiance and a delightful Mediterranean menu to create a very special dining experience. Breakfast, lunch and dinner daily. Reservations are recommended for evenings.

    Calzone's

    Calzone has dubbed itself a Euro Bistro for the 21st century. Sit beneath the large awning covering the front and enjoy a gourmet pizza while people-watching. Appetizers include mussels in garlic, ginger cilantro broth, or Italian pot stickers filled with sausage and mushrooms. Dinner entree's include a wide variety of pasta, seafood, beef, chicken and pork dishes.

    Hog Island Oyster Company

    If you are an oyster lover, this is the place to visit. Hog Island Oyster Bar offers fresh and local oysters and Manila clams raised on their own farm. This is the place where you can indulge in Oyster soup and a grilled cheese sandwich, which is to die for. This is, however, a very popular place so it might be crowded but well worth the wait.

  • The bar scene in San Francisco is as varied as the city itself. From wine and champagne lounges to rocking sports bars, finding one to fit any personality is easy. Mission District is great for bar hopping and North Beach for hideaway bars. The nightlife rocks in San Francisco and, like much in the city, nightlife varies from district to district: SoMa for hip-hop, Marina District for more elegant spots, and North Beach for lots of neon lights.

    Boom Boom Room

    Sultry, down-home juke-joint and the hippest blues club on the West Coast. Dancing, live music, crowded, trendy and romantic - New Orleans style.

    Blush! Wine Bar

    An extensive list of international wines makes this wine bar worth a drop-in. Ask the staff for recommendations, and make sure to come for the 50% discounts during happy hour. The kitchen is open until 11pm.

    Smuggler's Cove

    This tiki bar with a twist is all about rum, and the mixologists here create magic in a glass for the rum-thirsty crowd. The bartender's professionalism is truly legendary, so make sure to put this location on your pub crawl list.
