America's most relaxed city

Called “The Paris of the West,” San Francisco is a city that wears its charms on its sleeve. With weeping views of the Bay and the Pacific coast from its famous hills, it’s also known as America’s foodie capital and one of the world’s intellectual hubs. From its true birth during the Gold Rush, the city by the Bay has been home to renegades, social movements and artists of all stripes. Don’t miss the vibrant Mission District, the famous hippie neighborhood of Haight-Ashbury, or the shopping Mecca of Union Square.
