Off the top of my head here's what I'd suggest seeing in each city:  

 

LA: Venice Beach, Santa Monica and the Pier, Rodeo Drive, Hollywood and Vine 

 

SF: Fisherman's Wharf, Coit Tower, Get a picture of the Golden Gate Bridge from Nags Head on the Marin County side of the bridge, Napa Valley, Double decker bus tour of the city  

 

Atlanta: Fox Theater, shopping in Buckhead, Stone Mountain, CNN tour, Centennial Park

Atlanta is a fun city. It depends on what you like because Atlanta is very diverse. Little Five Points is funky and fun, Ponce City Market is a good place for dinner or a little shopping-as well as Krog Street Market

Fisherman's Wharf is fun; touristy, but fun. It's a nice place to visit, but I never eat there.

Golden Gate Park is pleasant. Even if it's foggy, it's fun.

The Golden Gate Bridge is iconic, and for good reason.

If you enjoy architecture seek out the Painted Ladies; the brightly decorated Victorian era houses.

As silly as it may sound on the surface, ride a cable car. It may sound touristy and kitchey (and it is), but even jaded S.O.B.s like me find it fun.

Hi there,

You should definitely start your trip in San Francisco by going to Twin Peaks. That's where you get a panorama view of the city! Once you go back down, you could start your tour around Fisherman's Wharfand Pier 39, two very touristiy but certainly must-see places in SF.  There you can catch a cruise to see Alcatraz and the Golden Gate Bridge. From Pier 39you can easily walk to Ghiradelli Square. The Painted LadiesLombard StreetCoit TowerColumbus Ave and Chinatown San Franciscoare also worth visiting.

As for Los Angeles, here's a link to our blog post about our top 10 things to do in L.A: http://openupnow.net/2015/03/15/top-10-things-to-do-los-angeles/

Hope that helps!

I love taking small groups like that to areas of town that have something for everyone. My favorite spot is Ponce City Market. It has shopping for everyone, and is connected to the Beltline. You can take the whole group on a beautiful walk that leads to the Krog Street Market. This time of year offers cooler weather, so the walk would be ideal. Enjoy Atlanta!

I would visit The Varsity. It serves more hotdogs than any other restaurant in the world. The atlanta aquarium. Grant Park and the CycloramaAtlanta Cyclorama & Civil War Museum. The World of Coca-Cola museum. We thought it was interesting and they have some kid things. Six Flags if they are open and it's not too cold. I'm not sure of their winter hours. They may be closed.

Enjoy!

Hi!  The most popular places for first time visitors are: CNN Center (take the CNN Studio Tour), Georgia Aquarium, and World of Coca-Cola. If you have pop culture fans in the group, take the Atlanta Movie Tours, Inc. where  they'll take you to filming locations of movies and TV shows shot in Atlanta.  Be sure to have enjoy Southern comfort food at Busy Bee Cafe, Fox Bros. Bar-B-Q and Home Grown Restaurant.   If you're looking for a taste of home, come to Duluth, Georgia for some good Korean BBQ.

I recommend you first take the "hop on hop off" bus. This will take you to every famous place in San Francisco so can see all the sights and neighborhoods. Then, with your diverse group, I think you all could have fun in Golden Gate Park. The Botanical garden is open Christmas Day (not sure about the Science museum). For dining there are many choices in North Beach. The website 511.org will guide you on how to get from one place to the next on public transit (Muni). Or just Uber around the city. Right now the weather is perfect here, so if you can avoid the next rainstorm you will have a lovely visit. Enjoy San Francisco.
