Golden Gate Park, San Francisco, CA, USA
Golden Gate Park was formed out of an expanse of sand dunes to the west of the city in the nineteenth century—a history that is still discernible in the rolling topography of much of the park’s more than 1,000 acres. Over 13 million...
Lombard St, San Francisco, CA 94133, USA
Sometimes all it take to make a road famous are eight, tight hairpin turns. This one way street was designed in this manner to compensate for the steep incline (27 degrees) of the hill it’s on. Traffic on the hairpin area is reserved for eastbound...
24th St, San Francisco, CA, USA
24th Street in San Francisco (not to be confused with 24th Avenue!) is one of my favorite walks in the city. Hop off BART at the 24th Street - Mission station, and walk the 1-mile length of the street to see what cultural commentators mean when...
1360 Valencia St, San Francisco, CA 94110, USA
You don’t usually associate a vintage store with being choosy, but a visit to the Painted Bird in the Mission will change your mind. This small shop carefully selects its items from the public, which means its stock is chock full of treasures—...

It's a hole in the wall, sure. It's a grab and go sort of place. Except, really you want to sit down because the authentic Chilean empanadas are so good. Especially the Niman ranch beef one. Ask for a little extra hot sauce for a little heat, pull...
Steiner St & Hayes St, San Francisco, CA 94117, USA
Ok I know it sounds kinda cheesy to make reference to the TV show "Full House," but you can't stand in the park across the street looking at the homes and not think of Danny, Joey, Jesse, D.J. Stephanie, and Michelle!
200 Columbus Ave, San Francisco, CA 94133, USA
Stop by Reveille Coffee Co and your morning will be instantly better. The light, airy space in North Beach serves up coffee, pastries, and some of the best avocado and egg toast you’ll find in the city. Founded by Christopher and Tommy Newbury,...
768 Sansome St, San Francisco, CA 94111, USA
Just a little highlight of my day, and not related to exotic foreign travels: the Reveille truck serves great espresso. The hordes of North Beach tourists will miss this hidden spot, and that's too bad (for them).
661 Divisadero St, San Francisco, CA 94117, USA
At La Urbana, a recent addition to the many excellent restaurants starting to populate Divisadero Street, come expecting to experience the complexity of Mexican cuisine with a modern, Californian twist. The cantina-style Mexican food combined with...
