the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco

San Francisco Vacations: Iconic America

Take iconic photographs of the Golden Gate Bridge from the park. Ride a cable car down the city’s sweeping hills. Mingle with the tourists at Fisherman’s Wharf and take a ride out to Alcatraz. Get lost in the bohemian Mission District or the LGBTQ- Castro, one of the first openly-gay neighborhoods in the U.S. Visit the Computer History Museum in Silicon Valley or venture north of the city to see the redwoods at Muir Woods. There are as many ways to explore San Francisco as there are travelers. Let your Liberty Travel vacation consultant craft you a San Francisco vacation that’s just your style.
