City travel guide: San Francisco


My next articles will take you on a virtual tour across North America‘s most famous travel destinations. For today, we stop by a beautiful city that you should definitely mark on travel guide to North America: San Francisco.

Here is a short city travel guide to San Francisco >

Named after Saint Francis, the city on the west coast of the United States, is one of the most beautiful and famous cities in the world. San Francisco is a true symbol of America and the fourth city in California by the number of inhabitants, with a population of over 800,000 and an exotic mixture of Hispanic, Asian and European influences.

Although Hollywood is, by all standards, the capital of American film industry, San Francisco remains a favorite setting for many movie makers, largely because of its special charm.

While tourists in San Francisco Peninsula are delighted with beautiful beaches on the Pacific shores, the natural beauty of the city is completed by the eye capturing architectural design, which makes San Francisco a true paradise for photographers.

There is a very interesting place that you should mark on your city travel guide to San Francisco: the Lombard Street, that you can find in the northern side of the city. The street, which crosses The Russian Hill, is the crookedest and most inclined street in United States of America.

The Lombard Street, with its expensive Victorian mansions and beautifully colored gardens, is a great tourist attraction for simple visitors but also for photographers from all over the world.
