San Francisco Overview
Grab your coat and a handful of glitter, and you’re good to go in San Francisco. Here antics usually reserved for holidays and disco theme nights erupt spontaneously, and when all that damp fog and sheer delight hits you, this town will give you goose bumps.
What with all the earthquakes and daydreamers, this peninsula keeps only a tentative hold on the planet, not to mention the continental US. But as any San Franciscan will point out, gravity is overrated anyway. With 43 hills and a population of free thinkers, crafty inventors and weirdos passing as normal, this city stubbornly refuses to be brought down to earth. Instead, reality is forced to rise to the occasion, with flocks of wild parrots taking to the treetops, ingenious meals by rising star chefs, and poets who just keep on riffing until their words take flight.
San Francisco’s stratospheric booms and crashing busts aren’t for the faint of heart, but as anyone who’s clung onto the side of a cable car will tell you, this town gives one hell of a ride.
