Attractions: Even for locals, San Francisco takes years to explore. Bursting with popular tourist attractions and eclectic neighborhoods, San Francisco is definitely a wonder to behold. One of the top attractions in San Francisco is the infamous Alcatraz Island, if not for its history then for its view of the entire San Francisco Bay. Fisherman's Wharf bustles with the sounds of barking seals and brims with Dungeness crab restaurants. North Beach's Italian flavor sidles up next to the exotic Chinatown, while Union Square and the Haight Ashbury district entice with world-class and diverse shopping. Just beyond San Francisco, the Napa and Sonoma wine country beckon with rolling vineyards and award-winning wineries.
For 10 years running, readers of Bon Appétit magazine have named San Francisco their top city for dining out. That should come as no surprise. The city's beauty, accessibility and multitude of superb, neighborhood-based restaurants make San Francisco a one-of-kind destination for food lovers.
Alcatraz Island: Alcatraz was the site of the first lighthouse in the Western United States but became a federal penitentiary from 1934-1963, housing famous convicts such as Al Capone and George "Machine Gun" Kelly. Now, this once infamous prison island is part of the Bay Area's 75,000-acre Golden Gate National Recreation Area.
Golden Gate Bridge :
Crossing the strait of the Golden Gate from San Francisco to the Marin headlands for 1.7 miles is the world-renowned Golden Gate Bridge, easily identified by its International Orange color. Opened in 1937, the bridge was built at a cost of $33 million and 10 workers' lives. The single-suspension span is anchored off the shores of the bay by twin towers that reach skyward 750 feet, and was once taller than any building in San Francisco. To support the suspended roadway, two cables more than 7,000 feet in length, containing 70,000 miles of wire stretch over the top of the towers and are rooted in concrete piers on shore. Ten years in planning due to formidable opposition, but only four years in actual construction, the Golden Gate Bridge brought the communities of San Francisco and Marin counties closer together.
Eighty-seven percent of San Francisco's visitors include Fisherman's Wharf on their itinerary. With good reason. Waterfront marketplaces include The Anchorage, The Cannery, Ghirardelli Square and PIER 39. The Wharf's working hub, "Fish Alley," sells thousands of tons of sole, shrimp, salmon, sea bass, squid and other deep sea delicacies annually. During the crab season (mid-November through June) devotees line up for the best of the catch. For an impromptu picnic, order some cracked crab and pick up a loaf of sourdough French bread from a nearby bakery.
