Finally I recommend you walk as far as you can between the hills of the city, San Francisco is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful cities in the United States, with lots of urban art and I also recommend getting lost in its restaurants and bars, because of the great Asian influence it has excellent places to eat fusion food, cuisines from around the world and good party.
