Why We Love It
San Francisco is known for many things - the Golden Gate Bridge, cable cars, Alcatraz, fog - but most notably it is recognized for its unique mixture of city culture and outdoor adventure. Home to Michelin star restaurants, environmentally-conscious people, outdoor trails, and the ever-popular tech-scene, San Francisco is also only an hour away from Napa Valley and two hours from Monterey.
Free (or Almost Free) Stuff To Do
Two hills near the center of the city offering amazing panoramic views of the Bay Area - if that infamous fog hasn't rolled in.
