Known around the world for its brightly colored golden bridge and for being at the center of the 1960’s counterculture movement, today San Francisco is a city in a state of constant evolution. The city, which is just 7×7 miles big and home to 750,000 people, packs a punch. Over 30 distinct neighborhoods comprise this compact and highly walkable city, drawing comparisons to Manhattan. Ethnic districts of interest include the Mission (don’t miss its burritos!), the world’s largest Chinatown, North Beach (Little Italy), and one of just three remaining Japantowns in the United States. Shoppers will love the chic Hayes Valley and the hipster haven Valencia Street, filled to the brim with unique local shops and cafes. In the center of the city nature lovers will enjoy the 1,017 acre Golden Gate Park which is home to the highly recommended DeYoung art museum, Academy of Sciences, Conservatory of Flowers, Japanese Tea Garden, and Botanical Garden.
San Francisco should be at the top of any foodie’s bucket list, as it boasts 34 Michelin star restaurants including seven three-star restaurants – that’s more three-star Michelin restaurants than London, New York, or Hong Kong! And it’s not just restaurants. The booming coffee culture, patisseries, and pop-up dining experiences draw rave reviews and long lines. From hole-in-the-walls to food trucks on up, San Francisco chefs are constantly pushing the bar and leading the way in the epicurean world.
One of the most special things about San Francisco is its proximity to day trips that will have you feeling a world away from the hustle and bustle of the city, as well as weekend trips that will show off the best that California has to offer. If you venture just a 20 minute drive from the heart of San Francisco across the Golden Gate Bridge you’ll find yourself in majestic Muir Woods amongst the company of the world’s tallest redwood trees. Another 30 minutes north, and you’re in the world famous Napa Valley wine region where you could easily spend a week pampering yourself with food, wine, and spas amongst the vineyards. Weekend trips could take you hiking in the breathtaking Yosemite National Park, boating or skiing in Lake Tahoe, or sampling the surf and the good life in Santa Barbara, known as California’s riviera.
