USA City Reviews: San Francisco

California, San Francisco Guide (B): USA City Reviews: San Francisco

We visited ALOT of states and cities in the space of 4 weeks and in that time we got a taster of each place and enough to know if I'm interested to visit again or recommend visiting to people.

I'm going to do a selection of reviews of places that I personally loved and want to encourage people to visit too as well as tips from how to get to and from airports / prices of attractions. 

I love SF. If you can tolerate the constant changing of the weather you'll love it too. Always carry layers!

We arrived at San Francisco Airport and chose to use the BART train to get into the city. If using this train make sure you research before hand which stop is closest to where you need to be and which coloured line you'll need. There are signs in the airport for the 'Airtrain' and 'BART' so follow these until you reach the coloured line you need. Our journey was to the Civic Centre / UN Plaza stop and it took roughly 25 minutes from the airport and cost $9. Alot cheaper than a taxi.

One thing I will warn about it the homeless population, it is massive. We had no problems, but just be careful of your belongings if you're arriving late at night and walking around with suitcases or backpacks looking like a tourist.  ......
