SAN FRANCISCO
California, U.S.A.
CITY OF THE GOLDEN GATE
Welcome to San Francisco, California. Located across the famous Golden Gate bridge it is home to a diverse population of over 850,000.
Once a small but booming gold rush town that flourished in the 19th century, it can now boast that it is home to the only moving National History Landmark the cable cars. It is also the birthplace of the classic Chinese fortune cookie and a prime destination for close to 16 million tourists every year. It is built on 43 hills at the tip of a 32-mile peninsula between the San Francisco Bay and the Pacific Ocean. San Francisco, aka Fog City, is well known for its steep hills over which cars have leaped in numerous action scenes. Aside from the fog and the hills, San Francisco is associated with cool summers, broad-based architecture, and the infamous Alcatraz Federal Penitentiary, which once hosted mafia boss Al Capone. San Francisco is a city of neighborhoods, and people here love to walk and bike. Be aware of the hills though; it is wise to wear comfortable shoes should you decide to tour the city by foot. Public transportation is terrific as well, and you can choose between riding the BART, light trail, trolley cars or electric buses, in addition to rickshaws, ferries, UBER and Segways. Those who feel more comfortable taking the car, know that parking can be particularly tricky! One of the more widely spread images of San Francisco is the famous Six Sisters; a series of Victorian houses on Alamo Square. For those who remember the 90's TV-show Full House, this is is where the Tanner-family lived. Every summer, the vendors in Chinatown and Fisherman's Wharf make big bucks selling not souvenirs, but sweatshirts many people tend to forget that San Francisco can get pretty chilly opposed to other areas in California. A true melting pot, each of the neighborhoods represents a different charm. This is partly what makes San Francisco so unique and one of the reasons locals describe it as the best place in the world to live if you can afford it! The tech boom has driven up prices and it is currently the most expensive place in the US to live, even topping New York City. One can only gather that living in this golden town is worth its weight in gems. One of the wealthiest neighborhoods, Pacific Heights, offers fine dining, excellent shopping, luxurious spas and impressive mansions. Head down to the ocean and Outer Richmond, a predominantly Russian community where you can visit one of the many bakeries or taste the top-notch dumplings, smoked fish and borscht. In addition to its eclectic cityscape and ocean vicinity, San Francisco has no shortage of green - the Golden Gate Park features 1,017 acres of nature right in the middle of the city.
