San Francisco Travel Guide

Best of San Francisco

The elegance of San Francisco lies in the sum of its parts: each neighbourhood has a unique personality and attraction, and together they make this city one of the best places on Earth to wander around for an afternoon. San Francisco is a relatively small city, only about seven square miles that are simply explored in a few days.

Nevertheless locals tend to elude Fisherman's Wharf because of its tourist traps; it still produces one of the best views of the bay, Alcatraz, and the Golden Gate Bridge available in the city. If you skip to the expensive restaurants, you can snag yourself a heaping plate of fresh steamed crab from one of a dozen or so street vendors; then grab a bench anywhere along the piers, enjoy your crab, and take it all in.

If you walk toward the Golden Gate Bridge, far from Fisherman's Wharf and through Van Ness Avenue, you'll find one of the best shopping districts in the city, the Tony Marina District, where sorority-girls-turned-publicists and the fraternity-boys-turned-investment-bankers who love them drop hundreds on designer duds, gourmet fusion, and imported liquor. San Francisco is the place where you can find the best of everything, with the selected arts and entertainment, music and nightlife, restaurants and shopping.
