Reasons to Visit San Francisco:
It’s One of the USA’s Most Historic Cities
Few American cities boast as many fascinating historic attractions as San Francisco. You can head to Mission Dolores, built by the Spanish in 1776, visit Fort Point in the Presidio complex, see museums dedicated to the 1848 Gold Rush, take restored cable car rides, and visit cultural landmarks like City Lights Bookstore.
For the Gourmet Food
San Francisco is a melting pot of cultures and all of them love to cook. You'll find exceptional Vietnamese Pho at Tin Vietnamese (937 Howard St), affordable Chinese masterpieces from Yank Sing (49 Stevenson St), and superb traditional American food at State Bird Provisions (1529 Fillmore St). There's also a galaxy of food trucks like Taco Guys (Mexican) and KoJa Kitchen (Korean and Japanese), who serve up stunning food for those on the move.
The Stunning Setting
San Francisco is famous worldwide for its appearance as much as anything. There are few sights as impressive as the span of the Golden Gate Bridge (some of the best views are from the Nob Hill district) but the views are just as stunning from Coit Tower on Telegraph Hill and the hills in Twin Peaks.
A Music Scene Like No Other
San Francisco is also famous around the world for its music. From the Grateful Dead to Janis Joplin, the city hosted some revolutionary artists. It also has legendary venues like the venerable Fillmore, the Great American Music Hall, and Sweetwater.
