About San Francisco Tourism
One of America's most famous cities, San Francisco stands in the state of California and is perhaps most famous for being home to the truly spectacular Golden Gate Bridge, which dates back to 1937. Other notable sights around the city include Pier 39 at the Fisherman's Wharf, where you can observe a large group of sea lions, who now live here and regularly sunbathe on nearby wooden platforms.
One of the grandest buildings in the whole city, the San Francisco City Hall resembles a palace in its appearance and is topped with a large dome. Also of interest is the notorious past prison on Alcatraz Island, the extremely bendy and iconic Lombard Street, the truly outstanding Aquarium of the Bay, and the Japanese Gardens at Golden Gate Park.

Near to the city and its airport, the Muir Woods are located to the north and feature some enormous redwoods, while in the East Bay area, the slides at Waterworld USA is always popular with families.
