The streets of San Francisco

semi-overcast 20 °C

The images we get from TV shows and movies on San Francisco are true. Very steep streets good for car chase scenes. Mean streets (in some places) due to a high level of homelessness, drug addiction and poverty. Alternative lifestyles leftover from the 60s in some areas. Some distinctive architecture (think Mrs Doubtfire) with beautiful houses lining some streets. Alcatraz located just out in the bay. The impressive Golden Gate bridge a definitive visual marker. Sun and sea attracting many tourists to the Fisherman's wharf area. San Fran is a surprisingly small city (800,00 pop) but a very popular city. It displays an easy, relaxed lifestyle; is very multicultural and has a warm, welcoming atmosphere.
