San Francisco's storied streets and picturesque hills draw some 18 million visitors every year. It's no wonder, as the city boasts some of the top tourist attractions in all of California, including Alcatraz, Chinatown, Union Square, and Fisherman's Wharf. Book your San Francisco flight and be among them, exploring the diverse neighborhoods, historic monuments, fine restaurants, and exciting excursions of the City by the Bay.
Hotels by Fisherman's Wharf give you a place to stay in one of San Francisco's busiest, most vibrant, and tourist-friendly locales. It's the embarkation point for boat trips to Alcatraz, the notorious island with its now-empty prison and a lot of stories to tell. It's a popular tour, and tickets sell out quickly, so buy yours as soon as you book your San Francisco vacation package to avoid disappointment. You can also enjoy a sightseeing cruise on the bay which takes you around, but not onto, Alcatraz, and under the stunning and monumental Golden Gate Bridge. The brisk sea air might give you an appetite for seafood, and you'll have many restaurants to choose from, as well as street-side vendors selling freshly caught and cracked crab, and clam chowder in bowls of the famous local sourdough bread. Hotels on Fisherman's Wharf put you within walking distance of Pier 39, next to which you can see a colony of sea lions basking on the docks. The pier also features many shops, cafes, an aquarium, and antique carousel. See historic ships at the San Francisco Maritime National Historical Park; entrance is free. When you're ready to explore the rest of the city, hop onto the Powell-Hyde cable car line -- a National Historic Landmark -- and ride as far as Union Square.
