Northern California's Finest with extended Stay in San Francisco
About San Francisco, California
This magnificent trip blends the sophistication of San Francisco with the inspired beauty of California’s national parks and scenic Lake Tahoe, Carmel, and Monterey. At the start and end of your vacation, spend time in San Francisco and enjoy guided sightseeing, a walking tour of Chinatown, and a 1-day Go San Francisco card, giving you access to over 50 top San Francisco attractions. On the way to stunning Lake Tahoe, stop in California’s wine country for a tour and tasting at a Sonoma vineyard. An excursion to Virginia City introduces you to this old Wild West mining town, then enjoy the beauty of Yosemite National Park, one of the country’s first wilderness parks with waterfalls, grand meadows, and ancient sequoias. Stand in awe as you witness the world’s largest sequoia trees in Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks, sanctuaries for nearly half of the world’s remaining sequoia groves. You’ll also have the chance to witness their beauty at night with an evening astronomy program. In Monterey, visit the famous Monterey Bay Aquarium and journey along 17-Mile Drive, where you’ll enjoy views of the Lone Cypress and Pebble Beach Golf Course. Be sure to bring your camera to capture this memorable vacation.
