While it's not as impressive as New York, not as famous as Los Angeles, etc., I would recommend it over any other US city I've been to so far!
It is unique in many ways, it has a monotonous good weather you can rely on, a ton of those charming Victorian houses and a long list of attractions, from the Golden Gate Bridge to Alcatraz.
California's Yosemite National Park, one of the first national parks, is magical with its enormous cliffs & domes, waterfalls & giant sequoia trees.
As I marvel the beauty of this place, I can't help but wonder what it must've been like for the first people to arrive in the valley.
On my trip to San Francisco, I got the chance to fly a Cessna over San Francisco by myself.
After about half an hour on the flight simulator, to get acquainted with some controls, we went out, inspected the plane, and I soon found myself a mile above San Francisco.
And the Golden Gate bridge. And Alcatraz.
Alcatraz, nicknamed The Rock, needs no introduction.
It has a reputation, it's a place of legends.
It's been featured in a ton of movies & tv series.
Naturally, it was at the top of my list when I was in San Francisco, and it did not disappoint!
