San Francisco, California

One of my favorite cities in America. San Francisco is not too big, yet it packs a lot of great stuff to see and do in its 49 square miles.

Classical and Contemporary Arts - check
Tree Museum of Modern Art, Asian Art Museum, the de Young Museum and the Legion of Honor to name a few.

Night Scene: check
Try South of Market and Mission districts

Outdoor Recreation: check
Try Golden Gate Park or Presidio of San Francisco

Walking (or just people watching): check
Try Fisherman’s Wharf featuring Pier 39, Union Square, Telegraph Hill featuring Coit Tower, North Beach, China Town features "Dragon's Gate" or anywhere.. Yes San Francisco is so very walk-friendly

History: check
Try Alcatraz Island - an infamous federal penitentiary, Cable Cars - yeah they still run here

Picture perfect postcards: check
Try iconic Golden Gate Bridge from numerous locations or even under the bridge on a mini cruise, Alamo square for those Victorian houses they call "Painted Ladies" or Lombard Street known as the “crookedest” street in the world

Fine Dining: check
You can find whatever you are looking for, from wherever in the world.

Weather: check
Arguably the best weather anywhere in the world well it's a little chilly around the bay, but hey you get the views

  2. LOVE San Francisco. Great pics. Been to most of these places. there is a Vietnamesen restaurant in China town that I love, called the Golden Flower. Little mom and pop place. If you go back, try it, you will love it. Tell them "round eye who asks for fork" sent you.

  6. I agree, SF has it all. We plan a visit about once every couple of years, but we still have so much to see. I love your photos of the Golden Gate and the parks, plus the one looking up the pyramid...very cool.

  7. SF is my favorite US city next to Chicago. I was supposed to move there this year, but ended up in Paris instead... Can't complaing, but California is still on the back burner. Thanks for the beautiful photos and stirring up a bit of nostalgia... I was in SF last month, just to see it one more time. It never, ever gets old. <3
