As one of the most walkable cities in the US, the streets of San Francisco are diverse, relaxed and a joy to stroll around. Check out the Castro neighbourhood, one of the first LGBT identifying suburbs in America and the adjacent Haight-Ashbury district, where the Summer of Love in 1967 famously popularised the hippie subculture. Take a ride on a cable car up the steep hills of the city and savour the view of the pretty ‘Painted Lady’ houses and iconic city skyline. Catch the ferry out to Alcatraz, the infamous island prison on San Francisco Bay, where Al Capone and other maximum security prisoners served their terms and afterwards, head to the Golden Gate Bridge, an excellent spot to take some photos (if it isn’t too misty!). In the evenings, discover fabulous San Franciscan cuisine on one of the city’s ‘Grub Crawls’, and sample food from the tastiest restaurants.
