“I left my heart in San Francisco.”
I silently nod in agreement every time I hear this quote. San Francisco is a city that I can never tire of, even though I’ve visited almost every year since I was born. And even now, living just on the other side of the bay from it, I still feel excited each time I head into the city.
A Beautiful View from Lombard Street
It’s a city filled with so much beauty, from the spectacular views of the beach and bay to the lovely Victorian houses that populate the city. I could spend all day just walking through the city, admiring the architecture.

The Beautiful Painted Ladies
And although I’ve been to the tourist destinations countless times, I still enjoy showing friends the beauty of San Francisco. Walking through the Ferry Building and along the Embarcadero, getting scared by the Bushman, marveling at the sourdough animals at Boudin, and eating a gigantic sundae at Ghiradelli is something everyone needs to experience.

From the Mission and the Castro to Japantown and Pacific Heights, from the Marina to North Beach and Chinatown, from Richmond and the Sunset to even yes, the Tenderloin, you can always find something new, different, and exciting to do or see and of course, something delicious to eat or drink! That’s what I love the most about the city. I’d be completely satisfied spending my days wandering around the city, stumbling upon its hidden treasures, and soaking up its beauty.
