Visit San Francisco

Introduction

The famous Golden Gate Bridge was opened in 1937 to connect the city with Marin County. San Francisco itself is a compact city and can be easily explored on foot, the 43 hills of near impossible gradients offering superb views. San Francisco's main sites are sited around the downtown Financial District, Union Square, Chinatown, Nob Hill, Fisherman's Wharf and the former prison island of Alcatraz. The 49-mile Scenic Drive links the city's most intriguing neighbourhoods, sights and views on a well-marked route. Set aside a day to discover sights including Stow Lake, Sutro Tower, the Palace of Fine Arts and Exploratorium, San Francisco National Maritime Museum and Grace Cathedral.
