When I was travelling around the west coast of USA, I thought none of the cities were nice enough. I didn’t really like Las Vegas or Los Angeles and besides of the national parks I was kind of disappointed. Then we went to see San Francisco and everything changed. Why did I fall in love with it? Keep on reading and you will find out.
Golden Gate Bridge
Well, I’m pretty sure a few of you already read about my experience with Golden Gate Bridge, haha. But when I finally got to see it, it was truly breathtaking. The thing is that you really need to know where to go for the perfect view point. We chose Battery Spencer and we could not have been any happier with it, after all, the proof is in this picture. Obviously there are many other spots you can choose from such as Fort Point, Marschall Beach or even Alcatraz.
Well, Pier 39 should be a must on your list of things worth seeing in San Francisco. Lovely seafood, street performers, music, shopping and more. Just be careful, cos you really don’t want to spend ten dollars for CDs from local artists over there like my boyfriend did. The walk around and the area itself is truly lovely.
Are you into views? Then definitely do not skip Twin Peaks. You can see the whole city for free from these two peaks and its pretty unbelievable. It literally took my breath away. Well, that’s how San Francisco roll´s.
Are you fan of Chinese food? We are, and that’s why we could not skip the Chinatown in San Francisco. Plus, its also one of the biggest chinatowns outside of Asia. You can find a lot of typical Chinese restaurants in here, or nice gifts shops or just lovely streets. Its awesome to just walk around and enjoy the atmosphere.
Alcatraz is probably one of the most famous prisons in the world and its situated in San Francisco. Its not cheap to visit, and you usually have to buy tickets couple of days beforehand. However, if you just wanna see it from the outside and you love views, then visit Coit Tower. You will be charged 9 dollars per adult there, but the views are so worth it. In fact, the lady in the elevator makes it worth the admission alone.
