From the hippie counterculture in the 1960s to the tech boom of today, this hilly, foggy city of contrasts in Northern California has gone from being a mid-18th century Spanish colonial outpost to witnessing some of America’s most talked-about moments of modern history. And while its famous sights are an absolute must, another not-to-miss is visiting the different neighborhoods, each with its own story to tell.
You’ve got America’s largest Chinatown which has turned San Francisco into the home of the dim sum in the US.
