San Francisco is a world class metropolitan city with a population of approximately one million people. The large skyscrapers, sprawling parks, and busy city streets make San Francisco an exciting city to visit. San Francisco is a beautiful city to discover and explore as a visitor.
Downtown many areas of the city will impress and entertain you. China town is a central area of the city and just as the name suggests is an area of Chinese heritage, culture and atmosphere. One can emerge themselves in the Chinese culture, enjoy Chinese meals, entertainment, shopping and people. The food markets are always filled with a variety of different types of foods, and there are also many different restaurants to try out. I’d recommend Brandy Ho’s Hunan Food, which has been called “The best Chinese Restaurant in San Francisco” and Yeah!, which is a Chinese bar and restaurant.
If you want to see something a little more risqué, visit Alcatraz , perhaps the most famous former jail in the world. Also known as “The Rock”, Alcatraz draws thousands of visitors every year. Alcatraz was a maximum-security prison located on an Island, and was deemed one of the most inescapable prisons in the world, is now a tourist attraction and can be viewed on a guided tour.
San Francisco Zoo
You can also take a day to visit the San Francisco Zoo. One of California’s largest zoological parks, it features over 1,000 different exotic and endangered animals. Or if you enjoy the outdoors, visit Yosemite National Park, a natural preserve of 1,165 miles of extraordinary beauty. The park features valleys, large waterfalls, peaks and lakes, meadows, wildlife, and rock cliffs. Activities vary by season and include hiking, camping, fishing, bicycling, horseback riding, ice skating and snow skiing.
