A well-known Detroit resident says: San Francisco boasts a few of America’s most beautiful sceneries and scenes as well some of the most eccentric social settings that I’ve come about. And that’s saying something as it comes from a Metro-Detroiter who spent plenty of time around that city.

Great shopping in the Union Square area, wonderful restaurants, impressive sea lions at the Wharf, the beautiful Redwoods just outside the city, and let’s not forget the charming little town of Sausalito, just passed the Golden Gate Bridge.

The city is situated on the Pacific Ocean, as such already offering magnificent views, and there are even seals on the city’s piers! Watching the San Francisco seals on the pier is a great and peaceful part of experiencing the City. It allows for a bit of relaxation and breath in the atmosphere of the city. I traveled all the way to San Francisco without any specific expectations and I must say, I really had a great time.
Also worth visiting is Alcatraz, situated on a little rock island in the middle of the San Francisco bay. Prior to becoming the location of the infamous prison, Alcatraz had it’s own history. Walking through the buildings of prison offers you an impressive time capsule.
