San Francisco Destination Guide
Get to know this world-renowned West Coast city that’s as bold and beautiful as it is dynamic, eclectic and individualistic
Once home to Gold Rush fortune seekers, then Haight-Ashbury hippies, beat poets and high-tech innovators, San Francisco is California’s famous City by the Bay that’s constantly reinventing itself. A liberal outpost with a nation-leading culinary scene, this metropolis of dozens of distinctive neighborhoods is always in motion.
Stroll the picturesque neighborhoods of Victorians lining steep hills with ocean views, ride the signature cable cars and watch the Golden Gate Bridge emerging from the fog. Try clam chowder in a sourdough bread bowl at Boudin Bakery and authentic Mexican tacos in The Mission. Tour Chinatown and Golden Gate Park, infamous Alcatraz island and world-renowned museums. See the sea lions at Fisherman’s Wharf and watch the sunset at Ocean Beach. No matter how many times you visit, San Francisco, surprises, delights and intrigues.
