Pastel houses under sunset
The most unforgettable thing to me about San Francisco is the nicely-painted, pastel-colored houses. If you're not a big fan of cliche tourist spots, I suggest taking a walk around the residential areas close to Palace of Fine Arts. It's quiet, breezy, and you're surrounded by nothing but trees and beautiful houses. Also, there's hardly any billboards or commercial along the streets, which is great for a city girl like me who's usually surrounded by cluttered advertising.
