The Three Top Reasons to Visit San Francisco

There’s a lot of talk about San Francisco being the new city to be in, and while many engage in the debate, there is one thing to be sure of – a quick visit won’t hurt! San Francisco’s charm cannot be denied. This picture-perfect place boasts of pretty neighborhoods and vibrant commercial hubs, all on a backdrop of a calm and beautiful bay. This booming town is one place to definitely see.

What is motivating a lot of people to swarm to SF? Here are the top three reasons above all of the praises that really draws the crowds in:

1. The charming atmosphere – World famous for Victorian style architecture and neighborhoods built on hillsides by the bay, San Francisco’s architecture projects a certain kind of romance from the architecture itself. Despite being small, the city has lots to offer making tourism a big part of their city initiatives, as seen by the flocks of tourist and number of  both high-end and cheap San Francisco hotels. The city has a modest size which makes exploring it easy and convenient. It’s perfect for an early evening romantic stroll, and ideal for a daytime family walk – no car needed. Speaking of commute – iconic to San Francisco is the sight of its cable cars. 


2. A City for Anyone and Everyone- One of the biggest reasons why people are flocking to San Francisco is because prides itself on openness in race, gender, sexual orientation and personal style. This is very well the most defining trait of the city. Here you can enjoy exploring San Francisco’s Chinatown with the largest Chinese population outside of Asia, the Haight-Ashbury, where San Francisco’s hippie movement thrived in the 1967 Summer of Love, and the Castro, a prominent LGBT neighborhood where one of the biggest and most extravagant Gay Pride celebrations in the country takes place.

3. Epicurean At Its Finest – San Francisco is a city of good eats. This city has more restaurants than any other major city in North America, and features a wide array of cuisine – Vegan, Asian, Mexican, Italian, and many more. With a wide selection comes a wide range of prices as well so you have so much to choose from you can eat in a different place every meal time! Must check out: The Fisherman’s Wharf for the seafood (despite being a tourist trap, the food can’t be questioned!), North Beach for Italian, Mission for Mexican, Chinatown for Asian with a western twist, and the Richmond District if you want to indulge in the local sushi obsession.
