San Francisco

0 (0 Likes / 0 Dislikes)
San Francisco sits on the edge of a peninsula, on the northern California coast. With 43 hills and a population of over 800,000 free-thinkers, crafty inventors and oddballs this city refuses to be brought down to earth. San Francisco’s stratospheric booms and crashing busts aren’t for the weak of heart, but as anyone who’s clung on to the side of an iconic cable car will tell you, this town gives one hell of a ride. The cable car offers the best way to explore the city, effortlessly, climbing the hills. Jump-a-ride to Fisherman's Wharf, fight through the tourists to grab a bowl of clam chowder, and stroll down to Pier 39's K-dock, to catch the colony of sea lions that call it home. Stroll through Golden Gate park, San Francisco's backyard. Indulge your senses in the Mission district, the city's hub for music and art. Then step back in time and wander through the neighbourhood of Haight-Ashbury, a national symbol of the 1960s hippie revolution. San Francisco boasts a serious foodie scene. The availability of fresh and organic, sustainably harvested produce means local chefs and diners are spoilt for choice. The Ferry Plaza farmer's market in the Embarcadero is a gourmet emporium, with almost a hundred stalls offering the best in locally-grown produce. About 25,000 locals visit the market each week, with the market at its bustling best every Saturday. San Francisco has its own brand of iconic landmarks: from Alcatraz, the world's most notorious prison, to the "painted ladies", a line-up of pastel-coloured Victorian houses And Lombard street, created in 1922 with eight sharp curves and paved with red bricks. It's one of the crookedest streets in the world. The Golden Gate bridge is the most iconic landmark in San Francisco. Completed in 1937, the art-déco suspension bridge connects the city to Marin county. More than 120,000 cars cross the bridge each day.
