About San Francisco
The footprint of San Francisco might be smaller than other major cities but they sure can pack in a lot of residents, tourists, and attractions. There is so much to do and see here. You could visit this great city every year for a lifetime and not see it all. Things you shouldn't miss include the tour of the island and historic prison on Alcatraz, all the museums and gardens in Golden Gate Park, riding on a cable car, hanging out at Pier 39, hiking at Lands End, eating pasta in Little Italy, getting dim sum in Chinatown, and driving over the Golden Gate Bridge to see Sausalito and the Marin Headlands.
