San Francisco Travel Guide

San Francisco is a famous city in northern California on America's west coast. San Francisco gets its Chinese name "the old gold mountain" from the 19th-Century gold rush. Many people from all over the world flooded California in the hopes of striking gold. It is a open-minded, avant-garde city with an atmosphere of freedom. It is very diverse in all aspects of culture, belief and food that make it the embodiment American "melting pot” culture. There are beautiful landmark sites such as the Golden Gate Bridge and winding Lombard Street. Ride the antique-style trolleys up and down the city's steep streets. Go to Pier 39 at bustling Fisherman's Wharf to see the sea lions at play and then head to the eccentric Haight-Ashbury district to catch the spirit of the 1967 Summer of Love. S1967
