San Francisco City Guide
Early city planners believed more in the merits of geometry than
in adapting their plans to the territory. They build grid pattern
streets on top of a hilly terrain resulting in ridiculously steep
lanes. Lombard street is known as "the crookedest street in
the world" because of its 8 sharp turns on a 40-degree slope.
Most famous sights of San Francisco include Golden Gate Bridge,
former high security prison 'The Rock' Alcatraz, kitschy
Fisherman's wharf and beautiful Bay Area. Check out
ancient Misión San Francisco de Asis (Mission Dolores).
A ride with the cable car (muni) is a definite must, too. Chinatown
is densely populated and colorful with the Chinese New Year being
one of the city's major parties. Golden Gate Park invites to take
part in many outdoor activities.
San Francisco features a good number of museums and an event calendar
to match its reputation. In the Mid-1950s San Fran was determined
by the Beat poets bohemian lifestyle, the 1960s saw Haight-Ashbury
becoming central to the Hippy movement and black liberation politics
and in the 1970s the city moved on to gay pride.
San Francisco is earthquake prone and was largely destroyed by 1906
earthquake and ensuing great fire.
