San Francisco, California is a popular tourist destination famous for it’s tech savvy start-ups, Pacific Ocean views, colorful neighborhoods (each with their unique spin), immigrants (thanks to the “Gold Rush”of 1849), fog, steep inclined hills, gravity defying houses and delicious FOOD! “The City By The Bay” as it is also called, boasts of world-famous landmarks including The Golden Gate Bridge, The Alcatraz, Fisherman’s Warf, Chinatown District, Lombard Street and The Painted Ladies to name a few. Traveler’s paradise, San Francisco sure does have so much history, culture, facts and food to offer.
My traveler’s dream of visiting “The Fog City” came true a few weeks back (November 10th, 2017) when my husband was invited over for a business trip to attend an all “data-scientists” conference in San Francisco. (Thanks to the “dot-com bubble!”) With a flight change and a layover at Dallas, Texas – it took us 7 hours to reach SF from Memphis, Tennessee. (Total distance covered – 2,091.6 miles/3363.53 km!)
