With every hilltop revealing a panorama of faraway horizons, it’s no wonder that San Francisco prides itself on its sense of adventure. From the Gold Rush to the Summer of Love to the tech boom, this open-minded city has always loved a big new idea. Twitter and Instagram have homes here, alongside a lively art, music and food scene. Climb the art deco Coit Tower for the most spectacular views, try mouth-watering tacos in the Mission District, and let the street fairs and arts festivals spark your imagination.
