Have you ever visited a city with a golden bridge? Experienced a place with more than '50' points of interest? Have you ever traveled a tour with islands in the city? Crazy with art, museums, cultures and meeting multiple language speaking people at the spot? Want to expand your historical IQ? Are you a person who wants to remember an nature-filled experience of your lifetime? Want to seek great heights (buildings!) ? Then you have found your destination: San Francisco!

Named after the Spanish colonists in 1776 ,who established a fort at the golden gate and a mission named for St. Francis of Assisi, which is a few miles away. This city is the headquarters for the world wide famous company ' Levi's' jeans, founded by Levi Strauss in 1853.

I visited this city when I was very young and many times after as it has amazed me always! This city-cum-county, nicknamed as 'the city by the Bay' , is known for many exciting highlights. For the tourist convenience, there is an international airport in the city, and there is food available for people around the globe. People can accommodate from motel to hotel, according to their budget. The city is tourist-friendly. Your trip can even expand to 1 month ,if it fits your pocket! Basically, you can see much of the city by one week. Happy touring!

The bridge is one of the internationally recognized symbols of San Francisco ,California, and United States of America. It is considered as one of the 'Wonders of modern world'.
