San Francisco generally is considered one of the most charming cities in the US, and I totally agree with that. It's a very popular tourist destination, with same reasons. I've found the city appealing, since it's quite liberal, prosperous, multiculturally diverse with picturesque views and streets.

As I mentioned earlier, the city is affluent and cosmopolitan, and my first impression about it was entertaining, I've seen all kinds of people, lots of shops, amazing skyscrapers, the famous cable cars, the cities trademark, pleasant climate, and great atmosphere. Let it be day or night,the city itself is always crowded, no matter if you're in a bar, restaurant, a historic place, chinatown,and even the streets in general.

The city has loads of amazing and renowned restaurants, clubs, and pubs and I strongly recommend San Francisco for those who are passionate party or cuisine lovers. Nightlife is vigorous in San Francisco, and I highly suggest that you should experience it if you're visiting the city.

The Golden Gate Bridge, The California street, Chinatown, the Embarcadero, Pier 39 the Haight Ashbury hippie district, the Union Square, the Alcatraz and basically the whole city center are spectacular in every way, and the people are very cordial.

Although the city in general is considered expensive, it is affordable for almost every budget, nevertheless, it is exceptionally beautiful and a worthy destination, San Francisco is a must see at least for once in a lifetime.

San Francisco History

San Francisco, CA overviewThe ship sailed by  Don Juan Manuel de Ayala was the first to enter San Francisco Bay in 1775 via the Golden Gate. The area where they landed, just off Angel Island, is now known as Ayala Cove.

In that same year, the La Mision de Nuestro Padre San Francisco de Asis was also built. The church was also called Mission Dolores because of a nearby creek named after Nuestra Señora de los Dolores (Our Lady of Sorrows). Both the Presidio and the Mission still stand today....
