    A city of contrasts: beautiful, charming and with lovely sights, tastes and sips, yet with a shocking inability to deal with homelessness, public cleanliness and efficient public transportation.

    It might still be cold and windy in the summer bc of how close we are to the ocean. Eat some sourdough bread + clam chowder, check out Dolores Park, and be prepared to walk.

    I used to live there. It is a great city! Always bring a jacket or sweater for the evening, regardless of the time of year! You will be surrounded by water on this peninsula.

    A friend who travels a lot told me once, "you can't compare any city in Latin America against a city in US, America cities are fascinating". He's right, San Francisco is like another planet.

    Best time to visit: September-October. Summer's cooler than you think, it's also the most crowded. Stick with early fall, when it’s dreamy light sweater season and the skies are relatively fog-free. Read more

    Please don't call my home city "San Fran" or "Frisco"--dead giveaway that you are tourists or recently relocated & don't know any better. The Bay Area knows it's "the City," "SF" or "San Francisco."

    Don't say we are a tourist for referring San Francisco as "San Fran" or "Frisco" San Fran is just a shorter way to saying San Francisco and "Frisco" has been around for years.
