About San Francisco
Only forty-four square miles in area, San Francisco is one of the most fascinating cities in the United States. While retaining the charm of the ethnic neighborhoods, such as Chinatown and Little Italy, it has been transformed in the last thirty years into a vibrant economic force on the west coast. Visitors always marvel at the magnificent bridges, the steep hills which make driving so interesting, the views from Coit Tower or the Top of the Mark, the restaurants along Fisherman's Wharf. The combination of the sea and its sounds and beauties and the city itself have always made for a delightful walking place: the cable car to North Beach will leave a person off at a wonderful place to eat before walking to Fisherman's Wharf and North Beach. That is just one of the many simple tours a visitor can make of this remarkable City by the Goldn Gate.
