Marvel at the Foggy City!
Standing on the harbour on the first day of your holiday in San Francisco, you’ll be in awe at the sight of the Golden Gate Bridge standing tall, cloaked in the famous fog. Sound good? Now’s the perfect time to take a trip with these cheap flights to San Francisco. You’ll have no problem finding affordable, quality hotels in San Francisco, either: the place is awash with them.
The most famous prison in the world, Alcatraz sits a short boat ride away from San Francisco; take the tour and hear of all the fascinating escape attempts from the island. Despite the fame of their jail, the people of San Fran are proud of their reputation as the friendliest in the States.
At the cosy, family-run Handlery Inn Hotel, right on Union Square, you’ll be able to experience some of this hospitality every day. The owners are always pleased to help and the hotel couldn’t be better placed for public transport.
Pier 39 and Fisherman’s Wharf
For a great day out, head down to watch the seals wrestling over their hard-won territory on the barges at the end of Pier 39, then enjoy a seafood lunch at Fisherman’s Wharf among the atmospheric vintage boats. After your meal, head back to the Vintage Court Hotel, a boutique hotel in the hip downtown area.
