Ensure your camera is ready. A getaway like this provides once-in-a-lifetime photos you’ll treasure forever—not to mention incredible memories.
It’s about 2 miles from the shops and entertainment of Union Square to the classic charm of Fisherman’s Wharf. This route is the perfect opportunity to let the famous cable cars whisk you away, however, it is also quite a scenic walk. First, spend some time in Union Square, right down the street from the Stanford Court San Francisco where connoisseurs of culture from around the world flock to the art galleries, boutiques, and theaters in search of that one-of-a-kind experience. Thanks to its central location, it is a popular stop for many travellers staying at all-inclusive hotels in San Francisco.
Make your way to Powell and Market streets to witness the fascinating cable-car turnaround process, then climb aboard for an exhilarating jaunt over Nob Hill to Fisherman’s Wharf. Have you already gone for a ride? A leisurely stroll through Chinatown and North Beach, two of the city’s most famous neighborhoods, may be in order. Stop off at the Coit Tower for breathtaking views and immerse yourself in the local atmosphere at a North Beach café. Finally, it will be time to make new friends with the pinnipeds at Fisherman’s Wharf, then dine on delectable seafood caught just hours before. And if you really want to dive into San Francisco’s seafaring ways, consider this…
Fleet Week is one of the most popular times to visit the “City by the Bay,” and for good reason. Taking place over Columbus Day weekend in October of each year, thousands of sailors come ashore from ships docked all over the city. Many are open for free tours, and the streets come alive with activities, from the parade of ships to the world-renowned air show. With ideally situated lodging like Harbor Court Hotel, you can take the morning to explore the ships docked near the Embarcadero, then journey along the waterfront to Marina Green. What’s that roar above you? It’s the legendary Blue Angels, twisting and turning in the clear blue sky. With more than 1 million people attending Fleet Week each year, two things are certain: First, you’ll want to book San Francisco all-inclusive hotels in advance; and second, you’ll have the trip of a lifetime. That many people surely can’t be wrong!
