SF is just one of the best cities out there! Most expensive too, since everyone wants to be there. From sea lions to Chinatown, Golden Gate Park to hundreds of amazing restaurants, there's no shortage of things to here! It's a very walkable city with great public transportation. If you haven't been, go!
