Situated on a peninsula between the Pacific Ocean and its namesake bay, San Francisco is a compact city overflowing with cultural variety. The Russian Hill neighborhood contains the famous twisting block of Lombard Street and due east lies Chinatown, known for its bustling markets and authentic eats. On the northern side of the city, the restaurants at Fisherman’s Wharf serve excellent seafood dishes while its pier is often filled with sea lions basking in the Californian sun. Farther west, the Presidio of San Francisco offers historical army buildings set on some of the most beautiful land in the city. Connected to the northern edge of the park, the Golden Gate Bridge provides fantastic sights out over the water.
