San Francisco is the 13th-largest city in the U.S. and the 4th-largest in the state of California. Ranking as the 7th most-visited city in America in 2017, it's the preferred destination for those looking to check Northern California and its wide range of activities and wonders. San Francisco's culture is distinct. From its bright houses built into hills to its cable carbs to its iconic bridges, the city is unlike any other. The population is extremely diverse, with large Hispanic and Asian populations coming from a long list of countries. Locals are friendly, accustomed to tourist crowds and generally happy to help with directions.
Popular neighborhoods include Fisherman's Wharf for its view of Alcatraz and endless waterfront attractions, the vibrant Haight-Ashbury section for its painted homes and eccentric shops, and the Marin Headlands just across the Golden Gate for their breathtaking views of the bay.
The city's weather is notoriously strange and can often be chilly in the summer with thick layers of fog. We recommend the fall as the time to visit in order to catch great weather and dodge the thick crowds.
