Many people from all over the world flooded California in the hopes of striking gold. It is a open-minded, avant-garde city with an atmosphere of freedom. It is very diverse in all aspects of culture, belief and food that make it the embodiment American "melting pot” culture. There are beautiful landmark sites such as the Golden Gate Bridge and winding Lombard Street. Ride the antique-style trolleys up and down the city's steep streets. Go to Pier 39 at bustling Fisherman's Wharf to see the sea lions at play and then head to the eccentric Haight-Ashbury district to catch the spirit of the 1967 Summer of Love. S1967

Golden Gate Bridge

Bridge
As a globally renowned single-span suspension bridge, Golden Gate Bridge is the symbol and landmark of San Francisco. The Bridge spans the entire San Francisco Bay and the Golden Gate strait of the Pacific Ocean, making it an important transportation hub linking San Francisco and cities to the north. Many US movies and TV shows have been filmed here. The north of the Bridge is an ideal site to take a panoramic picture of the structure; and its bright orange arch seems shrouded in mystery in foggy days; the Bridge's southern side is more suitable for a close-up snapshot of the water and the body of the Bridge. If the schedule allows, you can rent a bicycle and experience a more unique view while riding the length of the Bridge.

Lombard Street is so named for its multiple hairpin turns. The 40 degree inclination here poses a serious challenge to driving skills. The whole street is paved with bricks and lined on either side with foliage as well as multicolored flowers, offering diverse views all around the year. A peculiar crooked way can be photographed at the lower end of the street. The distant San Francisco - Oakland Bay Bridge and the Alcatraz Island can be viewed from high up in the Lombard Street, making it an ideal spot to take a snapshot of perfect harmony of streetscape and ocean view. Heading all the way north along the Lombard Street will take one to Fisherman's Wharf, a place to savor gourmet food and splurge on shopping.

The San Francisco Palace of Fine Arts was originally built to display works of art for the Panama-Pacific International Exposition in 1915, but was mostly rebuilt in 1965. It is currently enjoyed by visitors for its beauty, as well as by locals for private and corporate events and weddings. The entrance to the Palace of Fine Arts is often lively; you can often see children running about and playing in the open space. The lake and surrounding trees are also home to wildlife, such as ducks, birds and raccoons. The Palace of Fine Arts is designed in the Parisian Beaux-Arts-style and the interior of the rotunda's dome is exquisitely decorated.

"Fisherman's Wharf" is a symbol of San Francisco. It was the port where fishermen used to go fishing in the sea. Later, after slowly losing the effect of the dock, it gradually became a unique place for leisure activities and the culture. Here is the reason to come to San Francisco. Fisherman's Wharf was originally a fishing port where Italian fishermen gathered. In the 1960s, it became a tourist attraction due to the reduction in catch. There are many special shopping shops here, and there are many performers on the street. On the dock full of fishing boats, there is a three-masted sailing ship called Balclutha, which was in Scotland, built in 1883. It has been converted into a floating museum and can be visited. You can also take a sunbath on the lawn next to the road, as a leisure activity. Post: If you are driving, you can freely pick up the brochure "Free parking for 2 hours" in the parking building opposite the number 39. This color page can be used for free at the Visitor Center on the 2nd floor of Fisherman's Wharf. Parking ticket.

Lombard Street, is known as one of the most curved streets in the United States and is a famous tourist attraction in San Francisco. There are a total of eight sharp bends that comes within a short period of time. In the spring, the hydrangea blooms and is full of phlegm. It is very beautiful to look at. The street stretches eastward, passing through the Russian mountains, behind the Telegraph Hill, at the end of the Embarcadero area of San Francisco. The most well-known section on Lombard Street is the section between the Hyde and Leavenworth on the Russian hills. This is because it is the most curved street in the United States. There are eight sharp bends on a short road. Only Hyde Street is allowed for a drive to Leavenworth Street for one-way traffic in the downhill direction, while the Powell-Hyde cable car passes through the starting point of this section (ie the highest point of the street).

When you mention San Francisco, what do you think of first? I think many people, like me, will think of the Golden Gate Bridge. Don't just take it for granted that the Golden Gate Bridge is golden, but actually it is vermilion. The name was taken by John Fulimont, an American writer and explorer of the 19th century. Because when he first arrived in San Francisco, he entered the San Francisco Bay from the Pacific Ocean, and saw the entire port gleaming under the sunlight, like the "Golden Gate", so the bridge across the harbor was of course called for the "Golden Gate Bridge". Such an iconic attraction is unavoidable popular tourist place, and it is also a must-see for everyone on their trip to San Francisco.

Today, Coit Tower has become the most eye-catching target in North Beach. If you want to see the whole picture of San Francisco, take the elevator to the top of the tower. You can enjoy the scenery of North Beach to the Bay Area, and you can see the Fisherman's Wharf and Alcatraz Island. The difference in murals on the first floor is missing. The history of San Francisco has been presented on the walls of Coit Tower through murals. The 26 artists had recorded the history of San Francisco with exquisite brushstrokes and vivid colours.

The Golden Gate Bridge is one of the most famous bridges in the world and is a symbol of San Francisco. The Golden Gate Bridge spreading out on the blue sea has an exquisite design and a striking orange-red color. It is known as a model of bridges between China and the United States. Some people call it the "most photographed bridge", which can be found in many American movies and TV shows. See the beautiful figure of it. The best spot to take pictures is the battery point on the left side of the bridge. There are many viewpoints on the bridge. I drove around the place to take a step in the day. Some angles are relatively large, some are too far, 24-70 is not easy to use, or the battery point is the best. However, there were many people going there and there were few parking spaces. I waited for a while before I stopped at the car. The policeman came over to catch me once.
