Digital Postcard from San Francisco

San Francisco

It’s time to put San Francisco on that bucket list of yours.

This week’s digital postcard is written by Heesun, and it’s coming all the way from beautiful San Francisco.

I love San Francisco. San Francisco is a city that welcomes the weird, the new, the intellectuals and wholly embraces its quirks, most likely being the only city where its famous fog has its own Twitter handle. It has a great food and bar scene, music shows, sports events, and is famous for being an intellectual hub, especially for technology and innovation.

What I love most about San Francisco though is that there is an endless amount of things to do. For the first time visitor, I’d recommend the classic SF spots: Lombard Street, Twin Peaks, Land’s End/Sutro Baths, biking across the Golden Gate Bridge, and drinks in the Mission and burritos from La Taqueria. I hope you like the city as much as I do and if you’re in the area, please say hi!

    I love these digital postcards. You get to see a part of the world you may not ever get to see. I have only ever travelled outside of the UK once. Keep up the good work.

      Hello Nikki!
      I completely agree – and it’s a wonderful way for locals to show off the favorite parts of “their” city as well xx

    Haha I didn’t know San Fran’s fog has its own Twitter handle! XD The digital postcard idea is great! I visited San Fran a couple years ago and loved it; this post is a fun reminder that I should visit it again soon.

    Love SF too! Ghiradelli Square, Union Square (esp during the holidays) and Fisherman’s Wharf are places I always visit when there but so many cute neighborhoods and places to dine!

    San Francisco is so beautiful! What do you think about downtown and how the drive is just so steep? Crazy right?! I could never park there. I would be afraid my car would just slide down the street.

    :D

      Haha, that is actually one of my biggest fears as well – I mean, what are you supposed to do if your car just slides away from you?! Haha xx
