Tony Bennett would probably refuse to reduce his beloved San Francisco to ten heart-stealing attractions. And with new visitor's centers at Lands End and the Golden Gate Bridge, as well as upgrades to the Embarcadero Piers for the recent America's Cup races, not to mention a multi-million dollar overhaul of the Bay Bridge, San Francisco is adding new features almost by the hour.
What's driving all the construction of new activities and sights-to-see is that San Francisco is again flush with tech money. Although there's no end in sight to this latest bubble, grab your chance to see San Francisco at its latest "height."
On top of world class opera, symphony and museums, visitors can come any time of year and enjoy world-class hiking and outdoor activities. The only thing that stands in your way is usually a little chilly fog - which is actually free-air conditioning and excellent for the skin, by the way.
The only bad news about a trip to San Francisco is that there's no way you can cover everything in one visit. On the bright side, you'll discover endless reasons to come back.
