The beautiful city of San Francisco is located in the Northern Part of California State in United states Of America.San Francisco is a popular tourist destination.The City is on the tip of the Peninsula and surrounded by the Pacific Ocean and San Francisco Bay.The city is small,but densely populated.
I had planned for a West Coast trip of United States with my family for 3 weeks.The first place in our itinerary was San Francisco.I have always been mesmerised by the iconic Golden Gate Bridge.But San Francisco has much more to offer,apart from Golden Gate Bridge.

As soon as we Landed in San Francisco and got into the taxi to reach our hotel,we were treated to the famous SFO Fog.Later we got to know that,this fog is a year-round occurrence.It felt magical.San Francisco is known for it’s hilly landscape,beautiful houses,Golden gate bridge,Cable cars(trolley cars),Alcatraz Island,Fishermen’s Wharf etc.

As a tourist if you are short on time,you can cover SFO in 3 days.That is in and around San Francisco.As I wrote earlier SFO is a small city and all the major tourist destinations in the city can be covered within 3 days.There are lot of amazing places to visit outside SFO,But you need a full day to cover them.Some of these places are Napa and Sonoma valley,Monterey bay,Carmel,San Jose(where Silicon valley is situated),Yosemite National Park etc.
