in a nutshell
Pioneer spirit dies hard in Frisco. 150 years after the Gold Rush, it remains a place for mavericks and nonconformists. Ageing hippies still walk the streets, dreaming of a more peaceable Land of the Free; tomorrow’s tech entrepreneurs huddle over lattés and Macbooks in coffee shops so hip they don’t have names yet. Here, you can hike up snow-capped mountains, join jazz musicians for an on-stage jam, or wash away your troubles in the Pacific ocean. San Francisco is a city where anything seems possible – perfect for those in search of liberation.
Walking in SF is your best bet. It´s a small city that you can easily cover on foot or by bike.
