Whether you’ve visited before or it’s still on your bucket list, San Francisco is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the US. With Silicon Valley just around the corner, San Francisco is a hub of social, cultural and technological activity. Not just that, it’s a student haven, home to the largest Chinatown outside of Asia as well as one of the most legendary prisons of all time - Alcatraz. The neighborhood of the Castro is one of America’s first gay villages and the city itself is one of the most LGBT-friendly destinations worldwide. Let’s also not forget the legendary Haight-Ashbury intersection that was home to the Summer of Love in 1967.
