Every time people say San Francisco, one thing that pops in our mind is a giant International Orange-coloured bridge or a park that stretches over 1,000 acres. Although these things never lose their fame, there are a lot of things to see when in San Francisco.
Golden Gate Bridge
Formerly known as “the bridge that couldn’t be built,” today it’s considered among the seven wonders of the modern world. This glorious bridge, which is said to be the famous landmark of San Francisco, opened in 1937. It stretches for 1.7 miles from San Francisco going to the Marin peninsulas, the sidewalks of the bridge is open during daytime for pedestrians, bicyclists, and wheelchair users.
Golden Gate Park
The Golden Gate Park is one of the world’s biggest urban parks. It spans over 3 miles on the San Francisco’s western edge. You can’t find a single “Keep Off the Grass” signage and its 1,017 acres of area is a cure for the mind and body. The park also has two museums, amazing gardens, 20 sports facilities which confirm that this is indeed a playground in a way. There are other attractions to be found in the park like the de Young Museum, the Koret Children’s Quarter, California Academy of Sciences, the Conservatory of Flowers and the San Francisco Botanical Gardens.
Cable cars started operating in 1873 to help people deal with the hills the city was established on. Presently, there are a few cable cars left so tourists can explore the city in a historical way. Since 1964, cable cars have had the one-of-a-kind distinction to be the only public transport declared as a historical monument. The most scenic route of the cars is the Powell-Mason and Powell-Hyde route. The cars can also get you to popular spots like Lombard Street, Ghirardelli Square, Nob Hill, Fisherman’s Wharf and the Ferry Building. If you want to ride the cars for a few more days, then you should buy a pass.
Lombard Street is between Hyde and Leavenworth streets; it is popular as having the “most crooked street in the world” even though it’s not the most crooked street in San Francisco or the steepest. The one-block part of Lombard Street that has eight hairpin turns was designed to lessen the steep natural slope of the hill. The speed limit on this street is only five miles per hour.
Also known as “The Rock”, the island of Alcatraz functioned as a military fort, a lighthouse, and a prison. Infamous criminals like Machine Gun Kelly and Al Capone were housed in this island prison. Alcatraz was thought to be inescapable due to it surrounded by freezing water from the San Francisco Bay. The most popular attempt was made by brothers n and Clarence Anglin and Frank Morris with the use of an inflatable raft created from stolen raincoats. Presently, The Rock is a tourist attraction and historic site. Alcatraz is open to tours and is being operated by the National Park services.
