San Francisco is the liberal heart of the USA where natural beauty and counter-culture have combined to create one of the most unique and attractive cities in the world. With a melting pot of different cultures and a vibrant LGBT community, San Francisco’s laidback attitude makes a lasting impression on visitors. Despite being smaller than many of USA’s famous cities, its combination of world-famous landmarks such as the Golden Gate Bridge and island prison Alcatraz with the quaint beauty of its iconic trams and colourful neighbourhoods means that San Francisco punches well above its weight. And with sea lions to enjoy at Pier 39 and the opportunity to witness the stunning city landscape from cable cars, San Francisco is a must on any California holiday itinerary.
