Around the town of San Francisco is Union Square – the third largest shopping area in the United States. It is a fabulous place to shop for clothes, art works and items for your home – but make sure that you have enough money because prices are quite expensive.
A must see attraction in San Francisco is the “Crookedest Street in the World” or simply Lombard Street. Watching the vehicles make their curves as they go down the crooked street is a great a attraction and a marvel to the eye. Others have said that it is much more interesting to experience the crooked section of the street by riding or driving a car.

The Cliff House is also a very nice place for a drink because it offers excellent views of the Pacific Ocean and Seal Rock.
