San Francisco is the fourth most populous city in California, the centerpiece of the Bay Area, well-known for its liberal community, hilly terrain, Victorian architecture, scenic beauty, summer fog, and great ethnic and cultural diversity.
Known for the Golden Gate Bridge, cable cars, and Chinatown, the city has a great deal more to offer, and is made up of several districts, each with their own unique culture.
The Union Square / Financial District is the heart of shopping, theater and art in the city.
The famous cable cars can be found on the steep inclines of Nob Hill, where they travel down to the tourist area of Fisherman's Wharf. The Wharf encompasses Ghirardelli Square, Pier 39, and the ferry launch to Alcatraz Island, as well as a collection of seafood restaurants and souvenir stores.
Chinatown is the largest outside of Asia, and is next to the stylish laid back 'Little Italy.'
