San Francisco

San Francisco is full of eccentric personalities—and that’s just the neighbourhoods!

Between the tech billionaires in downtown high-rises and the Haight residents still living in the 60s, San Fran is a fabulous mashup of bohemian, hipster, old-school and new wave. Don’t be afraid to jump into the cheery madness. Toss a flower in your hair and cruise the streets of the Haight-Ashbury neighbourhood. Or perhaps you’d be more inclined to bark with the seals in Fisherman’s Wharf. No matter how you choose to spend your holiday by the bay, we think it’ll be one to remember.
