San Francisco is 49 square miles of good times. A youthful place with a mellow vibe, this small, friendly City by the Bay is all about its neighborhoods—from the Mission’s trendsetter tech entrepreneurs to Russian Hill’s old-money set to the Sunset and Richmond’s Asian and Russian immigrants. Visitors will find the city welcoming and temperate (unless it’s during the fog-bound summer!) and full of activities for active travelers, bookworms, shoppers, foodies, and cultural mavens. A word to the wise: getting into those hot Mission restaurants requires some planning ahead.
