There are street acts, amazing fish restaurants and the chance to meet some of San Francisco's famous sea lions.
They have made the old piers their home and their antics will keep you entertained while you wait for the ferry to the almost mandatory Alcatraz Island. Kite boarding is the latest craze and assuming you survive you can relax with the famous West Coast drive. Don’t forget the gorgeous Redwood Forest in Muir Woods too, San Fran really has it all.
A leisurely drive up to Napa Valley next where he only thing you’ll be plundering is the wine cabinets! World famous for its produce, you’ll get the first-hand experiences of each stage of the wine production cycle.
From being educated to expert levels to sampling methods of production and tasting all the wine you can get your fill of, you’ll be connoisseurs in no time. A balloon ride over the rolling hills is a must, offering spectacular unbeatable views.
