Living In The City

People who were born or raised in the city might think that San Francisco is not a big deal, but for people who just seen the city it is a big thing. San Francisco has many places to visit. There are a lot of malls. As someone who is from a Davis (a college town) these are amazing stores.   All of the malls here is great. My family had to go to Sacramento  to go to a mall. Also the amazing sites there are is also great. One of my favorite site is The Golden Gate Bridge, because it is a beautiful site and has a  lot of history to it, and just to learn all of the hard work put into the bridge. That is also one of the most popular sites.

Another site is Alcatraz Island. Alcatraz Island  is one of the most popular tourist attractions of San Francisco, offering a close view of the former federal prison, oldest operating lighthouse on the west coast of America along with gardens, tide pools, bird colonies, and breathtaking views of the coastline. Another site is Lombard Street. The Lombard Street  is the most crooked street of America and is a popular tourist attraction due to its location and unusual sharp curves. Paved with bricks, it is a steep, hilly street with Victorian mansions on either side. Millions of tourists come here every year to see this popular street, built with eight switchbacks on a 40 degree slope. Another one is Chinatown. The popularity of Chinatown mainly lies in its inexpensive and unique merchandise and food that is not found any place else. It consists of Chinese temples, art, culture, shopping areas, events and much more. It gives the feeling of being in one of the markets of Hong Kong. Chinatown is said to be drawing more tourists than the Golden Gate Bridge making it a must see attraction of San Francisco. Another one is Golden Gate Park.It is one of California's most beautiful urban parks and is 3 miles long by 1/2 mile wide, it is larger than New York's Central Park. Once covered with sand dunes, the Golden Gate Park consists of millions of trees today. The Park is composed of hundreds of attractions including Gardens, Lakes and Museums that are linked by wooded paths. It also has several fly casting pools and a lily pond within its borders. Being home to art, culture, scientific exhibits and lots of recreation, the Golden Gate Park is the third most visited park in America with over 13 million Visitors each year.

Another one is Fisherman's Wharf. Fisherman's Wharf of San Francisco is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world, well known for its historic waterfront, delicious seafood and beautiful bay views. Watching the California Sea Lions, Shopping, world class dining, a long coastal row of seafood restaurants, street vendors, talented street performers and beautiful bay views are some of the things that have made Fisherman's Wharf a top attraction of San Francisco.

San Francisco is an amazing city and people are lucky to live or visit here.
