San Francisco Bay Area

(185,000+ reviews from top 30 attractions)
Sightseeing Nature Museums
As free spirited and innovative as it is scenic, the San Francisco Bay Area draws both transplants and visitors with a mixture of progressive thought and an outstanding natural setting. Here, historical street cars navigate hills lined with Victorian homes looking out on a modern city skyline, endless vineyards soak up golden sunshine, and the Pacific Ocean shimmers infinitely into the distance on clear days. Giants of the tech industry ideate and create on gleaming campuses in Silicone Valley while surfers hurtle along waves in Santa Cruz and hikers wander among the 90 m (300 ft) old-growth trees in Muir Woods. With both urban and outdoor adventures awaiting, your San Francisco Bay Area vacation will give you memories aplenty; just be ready to leave your heart here in exchange. Our United States tourist route planner combines visitor reviews with your personal interests to make an itinerary informed by experts, but tailored to suit your style.
