San Francisco

The list of attractions in San Francisco goes on. Visitors to San Francisco are never far from one of the many attractions that has put this coastal city on the map. From grand, sweeping views of its neighborhood color and character, from glimpses of history to the world-class dining and shopping - San Francisco is home to a little bit of everything.

City and County of San Francisco is the fourth most populous city in California and the fourteenth-most populous in the United States.

As a result of the California Gold Rush in 1848, the city entered a period of rapid growth. After being devastated by the 1906 earthquake and fire, San Francisco was quickly rebuilt. It is located on the tip of the San Francisco Peninsula and is the focal point of the San Francisco Bay Area. San Francisco is the second most densely populated major city in the United States.

The first thing that comes to my mind when I think of SFO is the Most Magnificent beautiful Rust Colored Suspension Bridge I have ever seen. Its the Golden Gate Bridge, the Icon of the SF Bay Area.

Below are the Pictures that I shot whenever I visited this hustle bustle city.








Other than the Golden Gate Bridge, the Many things that come to my mind when I think of San Francisco are the Beautiful Lined Houses, The Lambard Street, The Alcatraz, Chinatown, View of the SF Downtown from the Vista Point, Ancient Magnificent Tall Buildings and a network of Cables and the Union Square.
















Union Square is one of the main retail and cultural centers and is a vibrant heart of downtown San Francisco. Its a spacious park surrounded by shopping centers of famous brands like Fifth Avenue, Macy's, Tiffany & Co etc.


















I hope you enjoyed a glimpse of San Francisco. Don't forget to drop by at these attractions when you visit the San Francisco Peninsula.

ya, it somewhat looks like our Kannagi Statue. This is in the Union Square Park in SFO. In the center of the square there is a statue of Victory, on top of a tall column. It's called the Dewey Monument, which commemorates Admiral Dewey's victory at Manilla during the Spanish-American war of 1898.
