It’s easy to find Union Square and the Golden Gate Bridge, but if you delve a little deeper, you’ll discover that San Fran is full of hidden gems. Of course you may want to first tick-off a ride on one of the city’s much-loved cable cars, a wander around Fisherman’s Wharf and a must-visit to Alcatraz. Then there's pop-up restaurants, local breweries, and enough museums and galleries to satisfy any culture vulture. When you leave the city behind youi can enjoy the slower pace of Lake Tahoe. Inhale the scent of pine trees, wander along sandy beaches and dip your toes in the lake - this huge natural playground is simply stunning. Yosemite is tough competition though. There’s something about its towering cliffs and breathtaking waterfalls that are so enduring.
