San Francisco is known as the hilly city in North California, surrounded by the Pacific Ocean, the Golden Gate strait, and the San Francisco Bay on a tip of a peninsula. Whether you have been to San Francisco or not, It’s definitely one of the most beautiful places in USA and the heart of amazing destinations that will leave you never wanting to go back home . Just before you ask about the weather it’s known as the ‘air-conditioned city’ with its climate matching that of the coastal areas on the Mediterranean. It’s also known for the fog that goes grinding all the way from the ocean covering some cities and disappearing within a short span.
Some of the major and famous attractions sites that one might not want to miss out when planning their itinerary is the;
Iconic Golden Gate Bridge. Just the site of this bridge especially at night is splendid enough to almost call it a day with the fascinating orange color, connecting cables and 746-foot tall towers. By the bridge there are trails for bicyclists and passenger sidewalks while for the photographers, chances are that there are best designated views from which to do the art work. However, the trip doesn’t end yet without visiting the Golden Gate National Park Conservancy, which is one of the biggest urban parks in the world dedicated to research, education and conservation.
Alcatraz Island. It’s among the most popular attractions in the city of San Francisco known as the site of the first lighthouse on the Pacific Coast. It later became a federal prison for best known convicts with the likes of Al Capone and George Kelly. So, a visit to these cell houses would probably top the list while making a journey to Alcatraz. What about the dark holes, the library and the steel bars? They are among the many reasons you don’t want to only see the whole package in movies alone. However, just before you make your way to the Alcatraz, there is the fisherman’s wharf, the name says it all with plenty of sea food such as crabs, chowders and shrimps and from here you can catch a plate of your favorite meal with plenty of restaurants such as the Forbes island restaurant , Joe’s Crab Shack and Bubba Gump Shrimp Co . Not forgetting the all-time favorite Pier 39, a Shopping Center built on a pier in this amazing city.
To wrap it up, a tour to San Francisco is an endless list that can never be a regret as it’s always a home of all experiences. Until you get to probably feed a shark among all other experiences, it’s a home away from home and an excuse to always pack up the bags for the holidays.
