About San Francisco

San Fran is chock full of colourful local neighbourhoods, each with its own distinct flavour. The Mission District rocks a Latino vibe with vibrant murals, authentic eats and cultural cachet; The Castro is the city's gay friendly hub; and Haight-Ashbury is hippie central with roots in the Summer of Love and plenty of counter-culture credos still around. Check out the hairpin turns of crooked Lombard Street, see the sunbaking sea lions at Fisherman's Wharf, and make tracks up the steep streets on a historic cable car.
