With its charming hills and water on three sides, San Francisco is as equally captivating for the senses as it is for the heart and mind. It is consistently voted one of the top cities in the world to visit.  Cable cars clang up and down the streets, the scent of fresh bread wafts out of bakeries, and the Golden Gate Bridge presides over the entire spectacle.

North of the city in historic Marin County, charming towns of Mill Valley and San Anselmo are worthy stop-offs on the way to or from Napa and Sonoma, the wine centers of North America.  South of the city, Silicon Valley is an interesting study in business, but not travel. Head on to Santa Cruz or Monterey.  Up for an adventure from September through November? Hop a boat toward the Farallons about 25 miles west of the Golden Gate, an epicenter of Great White Shark feeding.

Back in the city, for every iconic experience, there are 100 more that only the locals know about. San Francisco attractions are second to none, and the city has countless neighborhoods and cultural enclaves.  A simple stroll among them is often the best way to get acquainted with the city's true spirit.
