San Francisco – Arts, Sights, History

San Francisco is the jewel of California’s cities. I lived there for about 3 decades of my life and I love the Bay Area! Even if you only have a few days to visit, this City will not disappoint you!

Periodically, I will write new articles for you to learn more, and I hope you will come to see the Golden Gate, with a brilliant sunset beyond. It’s a sight you will always remember.
