Tony Bennett left his heart in San Francisco and if you take a trip to this special city, it will most likely claim yours too during vacations to San Francisco. It takes all types to make Frisco the enigma it is, and you can find artsy neighbourhoods with colourful building facades just as easily as stylish art galleries and designer boutiques. The Romanesque Palace of Fine Arts would seem out of place in any modern city besides laid-back San Fran, and even if it is at the last minute, be sure to take a ferry trip out to the infamous Alcatraz Island whose eerily vacant prison cells will send a shiver up your spine. While you're inside, see if you can figure out an escape route that eluded criminal masterminds like Al Capone who were housed there until the 1960s.
Get a bit dizzy on The Crookedest Street in the World, look for bargain discounts on everything from herbal tea to shoes in Chinatown, find the answers to everyday puzzles that have been mystifying you for years at the interactive California Academy of Sciences, and watch the best of street entertainment at Fisherman's Wharf. Whether you're looking to catch the Giants and 49ers in action on their home turf, take in a concert or two at the Herbst Theatre, or park yourself at Union Square for a day filled with people watching, you can get to all this and more on the cheap with all inclusive vacations to San Francisco from FlightNetwork®.
Weather-wise, the best time to book vacations to San Francisco is in spring or fall, when temperatures stay between the mid-teens (Celsius) and low 20s. More importantly, the fog cover that plagues San Francisco's Bay Area will not make as frequent an appearance as it does in the summer months. In addition, you will also avoid paying peak rates for package deals and miss the large number of tourists making the most of school holidays from June to early September.
Discount specials can be easier to find after November, and although temperatures dip down to single digits in the winter, vacation deals get more expensive around Christmas and New Year, becoming cheaper only around the second week of January.
