Beautiful City – San Francisco

All my American friends spoke of him with special trepidation, describing the amazing atmosphere of this city, so I was looking forward to the trip.

The city met us not in Californian cool weather. As a friend of mine said later: “If you don’t like the weather in San Francisco, walk a few blocks.” The weather here is very unpredictable and changeable: from heat to cool. This is due to the proximity of the ocean and the hilly landscape.

The first thing I wanted to see when I arrived in San Francisco is, of course, the Golden Gate Bridge, one of the main symbols of the city.
Last summer I visited the beautiful city – San Francisco
From the nearest metro station to the bridge – about 10 km. This is the perfect walking route. On the way to the bridge, I was able to see the famous Alcatraz prison, which has long become a popular attraction of the city, the lively Pier 39, which strikes with its beauty the San Francisco Museum of Fine Arts. Most of the way lay along the coast, and I was very surprised by the fact that there were no pedestrians and a large number of people involved in running. The Golden Gate Bridge fully met my expectations: it is alive no worse than in the picture, and it also offers a stunning view of the city.

The next day, we met with couchsurfer Robert, the owner of a fishing boat (she looks like a small yacht), who every month invites tourists from all over the world to go on a short trip around San Francisco Bay and act as a guide. To manage such a ship was not the easiest task! It requires certain knowledge, skills and the ability to stay cool in any situation. For me, it became very exciting to stand at the helm of the boat: it is always in a slightly tilted state, in addition, the bay is flooded with various vessels.

That day we visited the famous Coit Tower, the most crooked street in the world – Lombard Street, we walked around the Italian quarter and along the already beloved Gulf Coast with its numerous piers. On one of them our boat was “parked”, and we hurried to return back before dusk.

As a great lover of music from the 60s of the last century, and especially the hippie culture, I had long dreamed of visiting the Haight-Ashbury district. It is still considered the place of attraction for representatives of the countercultures.

Perhaps my expectations were too high, because when I got to the area, I found only two homeless people who played the guitar, and a lot of youth boutiques. It seems that the former rebels went into business.

It is worth saying that California, and San Francisco in particular, attracts a huge number of migrants: Asians, Latin Americans, Europeans, etc. And government benefits, a warm climate and legal drugs lead to the emergence of a large number of homeless people. Tents standing on the street, people sleeping right in the middle of the road, or dragging their belongings in a trolley from a supermarket – all this significantly spoiled the impression of the city. I want to believe that all this will change over time.

Would I want to go back to San Francisco? Yes, definitely. In this city there is something to see and where to go. It is multifaceted. There are many iconic places, many nationalities live, and each area of ​​the city is unlike the other.
