Newest Review: ... relieve you of your tourist dollar. The tourist harbor area's most famous residents are the noisy seals, which sit around all day eating fish, the laziest seals on the planet by far. It reminds me of the TV show Loose Women. The bay is full of sharks (and shopping trolleys) to pick off any criminals that tried to escape from Alcatraz, now the cities number one tourist attraction, $10 to get ... more

San Francisco is America's Brighton, although slightly bigger and bolder. It's known for its arty liberal thinkers and big gay population and from that comes creativity and bohemia. This city by the sea is like no other in America and like New Orleans feels more European than American. Crime is high like any other American city but the pure weight of gay and educated middle-class packed in this bustling and intelligent unique city has pushed the troublesome black and Latino warring underclass out to the twin city of Oakland and so San Francisco not riddled with gang violence like other US cities. When you walk around the city as a tourist you feel safe and detached from . Read the complete review

First impressions: When we first drove into the city from the airport, I was quite surprised by what I saw, as there are lot of small houses built into the hills that look like slums (slums is a bit of an exaggeration, but I can't think of a better word). Then as you get further in you get to all the skyscrapers, which is what I expected to be seeing. ************************************************************ Accommodation: There is plenty of accommodation in San Francisco, so I won't list it all here. I stayed in the Holiday Inn near Fisherman's Wharf, which was a nice hotel. I would recommend staying in this area, as it is a good location ... Read the complete review

One of the few places I could see myself happily settling, San Francisco is a great city, whatever you're looking for! To begin with are the obvious attractions, like the Golden Gate Bridge (catch a bus, or cycle there. Wouldn't recommend walking unless you really feel like it! Bit of a distance, as I found out), Alcatraz (prebook your tickets, look on the National Park Service website for more details, this is the cheapest way to organise this), and of course Fishermans Wharf. However, the best part of San Francisco are the small quirky places you find when making your way between tourist attractions. One of my favourites was Chinatown, and in particular the little ...

I visited San Francisco in July 2005 and immediately fell in love with the city. From the plane window seeing the Golden Gate bridge and the prison island of Alcatraz for the first time was an image and moment that I will remember for a lifetime. Lucky really I suppose to have been flying on a day when the dreaded fog hadn't rolled in. I booked my trip with my wife through Kuoni and was doing a three stop trip starting in San Francisco before moving onto the hedonistic city of Las Vegas and the grittier city of New York. As every with any Kuoni holiday everything about the flights, transfers and the hotels they picked was first class. In addition to this ... Read the complete review

I have been to San Francisco twice now and I can't wait to go back. Put simply- this city is amazing and is truly special. Located on a peninsular with the Pacific ocean to the west and San Francisco Bay to the north and east, it's location is breathtaking. One of my favourite things about San Francisco is the hills. The hills are what makes the city so visually spectacular, from almost every corner you get a different vista and this has the added bonus of enabling visitors to get their bearings. The city has so many things to see and do and so many varied areas to just visit and soak up the atmosphere. Although a detailed list of attractions and their reviews are more ..
