Clam chowder. Trolleys. Crooked streets. Foggy hilltops. San Francisco is a unique world city packed with shopping, food, sightseeing and unforgettable experiences worth exploring. Once you’ve taken care of the business side of things, stay busy checking out wondrous architecture, imaginative museums and some of the best restaurants in the entire nation.
Take the path less traveled; spend time in quaint Burlingame. Downtown shops welcome you to explore. Half Moon Bay sits just a short tour over the western hills. Be it wineries, beaches or world-renowned golf courses, it’s all within reach.
