Holiday In San Francisco

Do you dream of steep streets, world-class eats and living life like a local, wherever you go?

In San Francisco, California, you’ll find a “Summer of Love” vibe year-round, plus some of the best food and sights in America (Mission-style burritos and the Golden Gate Bridge—need we say more?). It’s time to show your coworkers how it’s done with San Francisco holiday packages that are a real treat.

Things to Do in San Francisco

Want your San Francisco holiday to be a little bit creepy? (We’re talking ghosts and spirits creepy, not sinister clowns or anything.) Take a night tour of Alcatraz Island and see if you can keep your sanity as you visit the psych ward, hospital and sites off-limits to day tours. Perhaps you’ll hear the music of mobster Al Capone’s ghost—who knew mafia men had a hankering for banjo?

If you want the quintessential San Francisco holiday package, make sure to visit the Painted Ladies across from Alamo Square. These aren’t ladies of the night, but you will want to visit close to sunset, when the glow from the west contrasts perfectly with the downtown skyline—and the snaps will look the most stunning on your Instagram.

Shopping, Dining & Nightlife

Hope you checked out the brilliant San Francisco car hire options from lastminute.co.nz, because you’re gonna need a big trunk! A half mile north of the Painted Ladies you can get in touch with the city’s funky side at Geary Boulevard and Fillmore Street. Fill your arms and empty your bank account at the up-and-coming boutiques and art galleries as you walk north on Fillmore. If you’ve really got money to burn, roll with the tech execs in Union Square. The blocks around this well-known park are packed with luxury brands and upscale shopping. You may not be able to have breakfast directly at Tiffany’s, but you can get pretty close.

On San Francisco holidays, you can find almost anything for dinner, so your next stop involves some decision-making. North Beach is the undisputed king of Italian food, so if you can’t wait to stuff your face with gnocchi, spumoni or four different types of pizza crust, this is your place. Head to the renowned Chinatown, which is the largest outside Asia, for foods you didn’t even know you wanted: hot egg custard tarts and whole roasted duck, preferably served in an alleyway where pointing is your only communication tool.

Chinatown is certainly an adventure, but the true shenanigans of your California holiday have yet to begin. The huge South of Market (or more catchily phrased “SoMa”) neighbourhood has something for everyone—literally. Catch throwback hip-hop acts, top international DJs or goth and industrial music, because even the darkest souls sometimes just need to dance it out.

What’s Next?

Throw on some Grateful Dead, dig out your favorite sweater, and create your best holiday with one of lastminute.co.nz’s San Francisco packages. Mix and match airfares and accommodation until you find your dream getaway. Then say goodbye to your flatmate’s snoring and hello to nights that may be entirely sleepless—in the best way.
