San Francisco conjures images of the Golden Gate Bridge, Coit Tower, cable cars, Chinatown and Fisherman's Wharf. Hundreds of other breathtaking sights and sounds await your visit to this sparkling "City by the Bay". You'll never be stranded in San Francisco - between the BART subway system, the MUNI bus network, historic street cars, cable cars (America's only "moving" national historic landmark) and taxis, there's always easy access to all Bay Area attractions.
From the narrow streets of Russian Hill to the Italian neighborhood of North Beach and beyond, the city is full of wonders.
