If anyone ever makes the mistake of asking me what my favorite travel destinations are, they’re in for a looooong list. One thing is for sure, though – San Francisco is always on that list!
SF became one of my favorite cities in the world as soon as I first stepped foot in it. The city has a very specific atmosphere, relaxed and carefree. It’s easy to breathe in San Francisco.
With several distinct neighborhoods in a surprisingly compact area, you can easily collect unique experiences and adventures without even breaking a sweat. Have brunch in the hip Mission District and enjoy the California sun on the grassy slopes of Mission Dolores Park, get a sniff of counter-culture history in Haight-Ashbury, do some shopping in chic Pacific Heights or maybe head over to see the sealions at Pier 39.
You could also easily spend a day or two just enjoying the city’s beautiful beaches and admiring the views of the legendary Golden Gate Bridge, or maybe by exploring the vivid ethnic neighborhoods around town. It’s a weirdly wonderful feeling to find new worlds around each corner. That’s why I love San Francisco.
The Castro is quite possibly the gayest neighborhood in the world
The sealions at Pier 39 are lazy, but adorable
San Francisco’s Chinatown is the largest Chinese Community outside Asia
Coit Tower watches over the lively hills of the city
Mission Dolores Park has a free-flowing atmosphere, and some fantastic views
In San Francisco, you’re always going up or down a hill…
…but this city is worth the climb!
