In the last 2 weeks, we have covered the three must see attractions in NYC and Chicago. We are down to the last one in this series and now we are going west to San Francisco.
1 - Golden Gate Bridge. As the most famous San Francisco landmark, this is one that you can’t miss when in the city. This bridge will take you to Sausalito and Muir Woods National Park, two places we visited that we absolutely loved. Trivia: The preliminary sketches of this bridge was very much different which the public didn’t like and was described by the press at the time to be “ugly”. The plans were eventually redesigned.
2 - Alcatraz Island. This island is home to an abandoned prison and the site of the oldest operating lighthouse on the West Coast, presently drawing almost 2 million visitors a year. Trivia: While the Alcatraz penitentiary claimed that no prisoner had successfully escaped the island, out of the 36 prisoners have made attempts, 23 of which were caught, 6 shot and killed, 2 drowned, but 5 prisoners were listed as missing (presumed drowned).
3 - Cable Cars. Because there is so much of San Francisco to see, getting on one of San Francisco’s cable car could actually take you to some of the places that would not make it on this list: Lombard Street (crooked street), Ghirardelli Square, Fisherman’s Wharf, and Chinatown among others. Trivia: During its launch, the Muni System was seen to be an “experiment in Socialism” having a government agency take over an industry dominated by private companies.
And there you have it! Whether you are in the east, west coast, or in the middle of the US, there are places near you that you can explore. Find one to travel to for your next vacation.
Last week we featured 3 must see attractions in NYC for first time travelers. This week, it’s Chicago!
Let me tell you, at the time we visited this city, we actually considered the thought of moving there one day. Of course, things have changed since. But looking back, here are the three things I think a first time traveler must visit.
Hi! My name is Tiffany. Thank you so much for considering Avaida Travels to assist you with your travel needs!
As someone who values experiences over things, I have been so blessed to be able to travel to several places and see parts of the world. Visiting the Stonehenge in the UK, hiking the beautiful mountains in Colorado, cruising the Bahamas, or taking in the cultures of Europe and Asia, these trips were not only fun but soul enriching as well.
Now as a travel agent, I am extremely excited to be able to assist other people and their families experience the world like I have.
I would very much love to help you design the kind of travel experience you want that will create lasting memories for you and your loved ones.

This service is completely FREE. As a travel agent, we are paid with commissions directly by the travel vendors or travel providers you choose. This does not in any way affect the rates offered to the customers.
As a traveler myself, I would want my clients to have an easy experience as possible during the planning and booking process. We work with a number of suppliers providing our clients a variety of choices in hotels, resorts, cruise lines, excursions and more. More than an agent, as a travel consultant, my aim is to customize vacations based on my client's personal preferences and needs which allows them to enjoy time savings and peace of mind.
We start with a pre-booking interview where you would tell me what type of vacation you want. And I help you find and put together the best package that will fit your needs and budget. Please note that a credit card authorization may be needed to complete each booking.
Depending on the individual cancellation policy of the travel providers (airline, hotel, excursion group), a booking may be non-refundable, or refundable with or without a cancellation fee.
