As with many of our favourite cities, San Francisco is a
collection of distinct and distinctive neighbourhoods inhabited by
tribes ranging from hippies to hipsters, but also containing some
of the most iconic landmarks of any city in the US. The prison of
Alcatraz, the sea lions at Pier 39, the Swan Oyster Depot
restaurant and all the other classic 'Frisco sites are well worth
exploring while on holiday here, and with a little bit of help from
us, you can avoid the tourist hordes as well.
