San Francisco is one of the world’s most attractive and vibrant cities with so much on offerWe saw the iconic Golden Gate Bridge, took a guided tour of the infamous ‘Alcatraz’, hired out ‘Go Cars’ to see the sights (which was great fun), sampled the local ‘crab’ at Fisherman’s Wharf and wandered down Lombard Street.

Our second stop was ‘Hollywood’ walking in the steps of the rich and famous!!  Here we did the usual touristy things, Walk of Fame, Handprints at the Chinese Theatre, Drove to Beverley Hills and walked the famous Rodeo Drive along with seeing the ‘Hollywood sign’ from the Griffith Observatory.  Our stop here was finished nicely with a visit to Universal Studios and Citywalk.  I can highly recommend the front of line passes which were well worth the extra ( we never had to queue at any point!!)


The last leg of our Californian vacation was to the amazing beach resort of Santa Monica. We rented bikes (which were plentiful) and rode along to Venice Beach stopping along the way at a beach café (just bliss), enjoyed the rides on Santa Monica Pier, sampled some of the amazing restaurants on offer and of course, a touch of retail therapy on 3rd Street Promenade.
