    Driving to the beat of San Francisco

    I have always wanted to visit the funky city of San Francisco. When you see the city in the movies it just looks like a charming place. The architecture of the buildings and the history of the city just simply captivate me! There is so much culture squeezed into this city along the north coast of California that I'm a little unsure how to start my holiday!

    First of all my USA car hire has to be a convertible, which we would collect from San Francisco Airport. After checking into our chic boutique hotel I would love to take a drive through some of the districts. First on my list would have to be the Haight district, it was home to the Hippie movement. Amazing artists lived here, to name but a few; Janis Joplin and Sid Vicious. Then it's off to Fisherman's Wharf, I have heard that there is a place here called Pier 39, it's an open-air festival marketplace, a great place to shop and eat!

    How can any trip to San Francisco be complete without a visit to Alcatraz, possibly the world's most famous prison. I have lost count how many times I have seen the films; Escape from Alcatraz and the Bird Man of Alcatraz, both classic films! Let's not forget I am English so no holiday is complete without a trip to the beach. San Francisco is not exactly well known for its beaches but after doing some research on the web it looks like Ocean Beach is the best to visit, I don't think I'll be taking a dip in the Pacific Ocean, there is meant to be a strong riptide around the shoreline.

    Before leaving with my San Francisco car hire, and possibly the highlight of our visit will be the drive across the Golden Gate Bridge. Wonder if you can stop to take pictures? Then it's off to see more of California, the wine regions, the beaches, Hollywood!

    This will be for us a trip of a lifetime, have you been? Are there any places we really can't miss, do tell?
