6) San Francisco

San Francisco is an electrifying city, filled with sophisticated professionals, creativity, and “gray-haired ponytail” hippies. The Golden Gate Bridge is synonymous with the city, and probably it’s best known landmark. The notorious island of Alcatraz is a close second. You can take a drive down the “Crookedest Road” at the end of Lombard Street before hitting the famed Fisherman’s Wharf. Here, you’ll find street entertainers, endless craft vendors, funky shops, and museums. For the chocolate lover, you won’t want to miss a stop at Ghirardelli Square. At the Aquarium of the Bay on Pier 39, you can view undersea life up close through glass walking tunnels under the bay. Indulge in the famous sidewalk seafood takeaway or enjoy a restaurant sit-down meal including the famous Sourdough bread bowl clam chowder. Be advised, San Francisco can be quite chilly, especially in foggy summer months, so bring a jacket and long pants.
