"World class city all packed into 7X7 square miles!" San Francisco by rkearns

San Francisco Travel Guide: 9,326 reviews and 20,059 photos

San Francisco is a world class city, and to me, that means it has everything you could possibly want: a melting pot of cultures, food, theatre, shopping, nightlife, museums, architecture, views, political events, progressive and sustainable thinking, efficient transportation and most importantly, PRIDE. I love my city and it trumps LA and NY because you still feel as if you have a community but can also be completely off the radar at the same time. The people who live here are open-minded and forward-thinking, they like to try new things, support local business, ride their bikes, enjoy the outdoors and feel like a native, even though they may be from the other side of the world. I hope you can take some of my tips and use them to make your stay enjoyable.

    I love your city too, Regina. You're a lucky lady to live in such a diverse and beautiful place! Funny experience with Baker Beach - didn't realize clothing was optional until I downloaded the camera!! HA!

    Great tips. Bring back fond memories of San Francisco when I was there. I drove to Chinatown and Fisherman's wharf often from Santa Clara. Cheers from Penang Island, SL :)
