Discover two of the most popular holiday destinations in the USA, Las Vegas and San Francisco. You’ll start in the bright lights of Las Vegas, or sin city as it is known by many before moving to the stunning waterfront location of San Francisco with its hills and cable cars.
Famous for its magnificent hotels, household names like The Mirage, Bellagio, and Venetian, there are fountains, attractions and curiosities galore to explore in Las Vegas. Try your luck at the blackjack or roulette tables in the opulent surroundings of a Las Vegas casino or enjoy the world class entertainment of a show. Las Vegas is a super base for discovering some of Nevada’s natural beauty. Visit the Grand Canyon, see it from above by helicopter if you can. Red Rock Canyon, not far from Vegas, has plenty of adventure activities for outdoor lovers.
Your visit to America’s West Coast continues in the waterfront city of San Francisco, famous for its steep hills and old-style cable cars. Take a stroll around Fisherman’s Wharf, known for its shops, restaurants and waterfront setting, then head to Union Square, the 2.6-acre public plaza in downtown San Francisco, for more dining and shopping options. The ferry ride to Alcatraz Island from Pier 33 is a great opportunity to see the iconic Golden Gate Bridge.
Las Vegas - For a lovely dinner try the Tender Steakhouse at the hotel Luxor. Great steaks and their crème Brule is delicious.
San Francisco - If you want to venture out of the city and explore the wine country, and are particularly interested in wineries that use organic grapes, there's a handy little iPhone app, vinOrganica California you get on the iTunes store. Tons of photos, descriptions of the wineries, tour and tasting info
