Travelers with limited time in San Francisco are faced with a tough choice—spend a day exploring the city, or cross the Golden Gate Bridge to experience the towering redwood trees. With this full-day excursion, you can do both in just a few hours. Start with a quick ride across the city and pass must-see sights—like the Palace of Fine Arts, and historic Haight-Ashbury—before heading into Marin to experience the coastal redwoods, in the Muir Woods wilderness.
