About San Francisco


San Francisco keeps it cool – in more ways than one. Chilly morning fog, abundant greenery and hillsides lined with well-kept Victorian homes give San Francisco a northern European feel. But this is not your grandmother’s San Francisco: this one-time home to the Beat Generation and the Summer of Love is now one of America’s most expensive cities, flush with cash from nearby Silicon Valley. Even the once down-and-out Mission District is being transformed into a tech zone, with a new Twitter headquarters at its centre.

The coldest winter I ever spent was a summer in San Francisco' is an apt quote, but no one is quite sure who first said it.

If you are a foodie, you will find some of the country’s best restaurants here, offering tasty and unusual approaches to fresh Californian cuisine. Enjoy a long walk along San Francisco’s scenic sidewalks – but watch out for the local bicyclists, who zip up and down the city’s hills at sonic speeds.

The SF Board of Supervisors only recently made it illegal to walk the streets of the city naked, except for festival days.

About San Francisco

San Francisco: It’s Seattle without the rain. LA without the hassle. Brooklyn without the posers. Built on the wild speculation of the Gold Rush, San Francisco is perfectly suited to absorb the madness of nearby Silicon Valley.

Across the bay, Marin County boasts one of the highest concentrations of millionaires on the planet. But on the other side of the iconic bridge, SF manages to keep things much more chilled – quite literally. It may be California, but the city has its own cool, fresh microclimate, which changes from neighbourhood to neighbourhood.

Maybe that’s why so many hipsters flock to the Mission, the traditionally Hispanic neighbourhood that enjoys the most sunshine of all the city’s districts. Nestled among the world-class burrito joints you’ll find some of the city’s edgiest bars, clubs and independent bookshops, stuffed to the rafters with local zines. But the first stop on any literary tour of the city has to be the City Lights bookstore, nestled between China Town and the Italian neighbourhood of North Beach. Back in the 50s, founder Lawrence Ferlinghetti was tried for obscenity after publishing Allan Ginsberg’s Howl. These days you’re more likely to encounter Beat enthusiasts than angry lawmakers.

The Haight may be the Ground Zero for 60s counter-culture, but visitors of every sexual orientation flock to the Castro: a place to let your freak flag fly. Here one of the city’s most beautiful art-deco cinemas, the Castro Theatre, has been packing in the punters for more than 90 years.

With its dramatic hills, lush flora and Pacific panoramas, San Francisco must be one of the most gorgeous cities on the planet. As the thrice weekly Ferry Building market makes clear, the Bay Area doesn’t do badly for local produce either. Browse the endless varieties of fruit and vegetables, then join the queues for the dangerously good street vans. Your hog roast or monkfish frittata will taste all the better for being eaten on the edge of the bay, with sea lions and buskers providing the entertainment.
