Oct.17, 2012 - San Francisco during the holidays is like a 49 square mile array of gift-wrapped delights.

The San Francisco Travel Association knows that 48 hours is just not enough time to experience all there is to see and do in the City by the Bay – especially during the holiday season. They have named their new campaign “49 Hours of SF: Holidays” with the goal of encouraging visitors to plan a 48-hour weekend getaway – plus an extra hour. The program is sponsored by American Express, Amtrak, PIER 39, The Lion King, San Francisco Ballet, and Walt Disney Family Museum.
For additional holiday savings, regional residents who sign up for PIER 39’s “Locals Only” program will receive 50% off at participating PIER 39 merchants during the holiday season. And, Amtrak is offering visitors 50% off weekend travel on Capitol Corridor routes. Tickets can be booked at www.amtrak.com/ccjpa50.
