San Francisco Holidays
Cable cars, painted ladies, and a famous zig-zag street await in San Fran
Think of a holiday in San Francisco and once the image of its famous fog lifts, you instantly picture attractions like the Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz Prison, vertiginous streets, beautiful Victorian architecture, cable cars and the largest Chinatown outside of Asia. The Haight Ashbury area is famous for being the centre of the Hippie movement and still retains an eclectic bohemian vibe. The city's other notable neighbourhoods are the Castro, home to San Francisco's queer community, and the Mission district which has a distinct Hispanic flavour.
