San Francisco

This month, we’re giving one lucky rewards member flights for two to San Francisco with Air Canada.

You’ve heard about the Golden Gate Bridge, the cable cars and Alcatraz, but have you experienced the magic of San Francisco for yourself? Now it’s easier than ever to get to San Francisco with Air Canada’s new daily non-stop service from Edmonton starting on May 1, 2018. There’s many reasons to visit San Francisco, but below is a list of our top seven sights to see on your next trip.

Golden Gate Bridge

Iconic and world-famous, check the Golden Gate Bridge off your bucket list. Built in 1937, the Golden Gate Bridge connects San Francisco Bay and Marin County. At the time, it was the longest suspension bridge ever created, and is now known as one of the modern wonders of the world. Bring along the selfie stick, because the Golden Gate Bridge makes for the perfect photo backdrop.

Alcatraz Island

Known as the federal prison hosting some of the world’s most dangerous criminals from 1934 to 1963, Alcatraz Island is now available to tour and explore. Notorious gangster Al “Scarface” Capone and murderer Robert “Birdman of Alcatraz” Stroud were a few of the well-known inmates in the maximum-security facility. You may have seen the Hollywood movie “Escape from Alcatraz”, but no inmate has ever escaped from the prison while it was open.

Cable Cars

A visit to San Francisco isn’t complete without a ride on a cable car! Take an old trolly from Powell Street to the end of the line at the Fisherman’s Wharf, and take in the breathtaking views along the way. For a guide of San Francisco’s cable car routes, visit here.

Napa Valley

Just a hop, skip and jump from San Francisco is Napa Valley! Enjoy wine tastings, stunning views and behind-the-scene tours of wine cellars during your visit. With more than 400 wineries and 95% of them being family-owned and operated, the valley offers something for everyone. Pro tip: Make sure to schedule your winery appointments well in advance!

A different type of Valley

Nestled between San Francisco and San Jose is Silicon Valley, the heart and soul of the technology industry! It is here that lives the headquarters for Google, Facebook, Apple, Intel, eBay, Netflix and Yahoo.

Foodie Paradise

Calling all foodies! Head to Ferry Building Marketplace and visit the huge farmers’ market, stroll through the shops and cafes, and sample artisan cheese and chocolate. From Vietnamese cuisine at Slanted Door to burgers and shakes at Gotts Roadside, there’s no shortage of great places to eat at Ferry Building Marketplace.

AT&T Park

AT&T Park is home to the San Francisco Giants and can seat over 40,000 people! Sit back with a beer, some snacks and enjoy the game. The Giants have won three of the past World Series titles, and AT&T Park was chosen as the 2008 Sports Facility of the Year.
