A friend recently asked me which California city she should check out on her first time visit. I asked her what she was looking for in her visit, whether it was sun and beach (San Diego), shopping and pretty people (Los Angeles), or culture/arts and nature (San Francisco). In my opinion, San Francisco is the perfect blend of all three popular California cities.
My weekend consisted of eating at Fisherman’s Wharf and the famous China Town, hiking the beautiful trails at Golden Gate Park, strolling through the Japanese Tea Garden, and shopping at Union Square and the Ferry Farmer’s Market. The city is 7 miles X 7 miles, so everything is close, but expect some congestion due to all the traffic lights.
