It's with good reason that San Francisco is referred to as "everybody's favorite city." This compact yet dynamic California town is easy to get around and packed with iconic sights. Start at the Golden Gate Bridge, best viewed from below via a boat trip around the Bay (walking across is also an indelible experience). Make a stop at infamous Alcatraz Island and visit the lore- and movie-inspiring impenetrable prison. As you make your way around during your city break, be sure to take at least one ride on a trolley car. And when the sun goes down, head to Pier 39, where you can choose from fresh seafood served at both five-star restaurants and casual snack carts. Either way, the views can't be missed. For weekend getaways in baseball season, be sure to catch a Giants game, and in early fall through the winter, don't miss the San Francisco 49ers (NFL). Finally, for great eats at any hour, head to Chinatown — it's the country's largest!
