Arrive early in San Francisco to enjoy all that this beguiling bayside city has to offer. Catch a cable car to Market Street, explore the bohemian suburb of Haight-Ashbury and look out over the iconic Golden Gate Bridge. Then, leave the city behind and journey to Lake Tahoe, the perfect destination for those with an adventurous streak. Hike, swim, rent bikes, set sail on the waters or simply relax on the shores of the lake. It'll be easy to spend a free afternoon in this scenic spot.
Hit the road and visit one of the most spectacular parks in California, Yosemite. This national park boasts incredible beauty at every turn. From drenching waterfalls and turquoise lakes to the hulking masses of El Capitan and Half Dome, it's impossible to take a bad photograph here. Strap on comfortable hiking shoes and head out on one of the many trails in this park. With walks ranging from easy strolls to challenging treks, there's something to suit every fitness level. Perhaps enjoy an afternoon hike to one of the lower Nevada Falls or a more leisurely walk to Mirror Lake. Soak in the sights, smells and sounds of this unforgettable setting.
Say goodbye to the grand panoramas of Yosemite and head back to San Francisco Bay. Stop off to gaze up at some mighty redwoods en route to the city. There'll still be a great deal of things to see and experience - perhaps check out the architecture of the Palace of Fine Arts or while away an hour or two in Golden Gate Park. Celebrate the end of your Yosemite and Tahoe adventure with a dumpling feast in San Francisco city's bustling Chinatown.
