Humour & Gift
Table Of Contents:
A brief history: San Francisco joined the USA in 1848, just as the Gold Rush changed the City forever. Booms and busts, earthquakes, fires, world wars and waves of immigration all mark its history.
Landmarks: Discovering San Francisco's cable cars and the Golden Gate Bridge to Lombard Street, the World's Crookedest Street, and the sea lions at Pier 39 along Fisherman's Wharf overlooking Alcatraz.
Art, Culture and Notable People: City Lights Bookstore, heart of the Beat Generation, is the first culture stop for many visitors, but San Francisco has many world class museums and is home to the rich and famous.
Neighbourhoods and the Great Outdoors: Golden Gate Park features pagodas, paddocks and boating, but SF also has urban beaches as well as districts that all have their own unique characteristics and history.
Getting Around: You don't have to take a cable car to move around SF, and but if you're willing to walk you'll be well-rewarded by making your own discoveries that line the city streets.
Secret San Francisco: San Francisco's fog may have a name (Karl) and its own Twitter feed, but it can still hide the City's secrets in its blanket.
