Trevor’s Travels: San Francisco, CA

by TrevorJune 24, 2016

Greetings from the City by the Bay! I just finished a whirlwind visit to San Francisco, the 14th largest city in the U.S. and one of the most exciting.

San Francisco is home to some of the nation’s most inspired landmarks and districts like the Golden Gate Bridge, Chinatown, and Fisherman’s Wharf. It’s also the center of a diverse and sophisticated culinary scene. Finally, it’s also headquarters for several banking institutions as well as several major companies like Pacific Gas and Electric, Craigslist, Wikipedia, Uber, Twitter, and Mozilla to name a few. For these reasons I found San Francisco to be a fantastic, diverse place to live.

Like any large city, certain parts of San Francisco can be a little expensive; however, the cost of living can easily be counterbalanced with other perks. For example, San Francisco has a comparatively low unemployment rate. Of course, all work and no play makes for a dull time indeed, so I have to live in a city where I can blow out my leisure time.

Because of the clear, comfortable weather, I spent much of my time outdoors bike riding (yes, even up the hills; I’m sure my thighs will speak to me again eventually other than in screams). When I wasn’t riding, Golden Gate Park was my sanctuary. The Japanese Tea Garden, De Young’s Observatory Tower, and the Botanical Gardens were all relaxing, and nothing beats a quiet stroll through the forest.

Last but by no means least is the food scene in San Francisco. There was so much incredible food in the city that it’s impossible for me to reduce it into one sound bite. San Francisco is both innovative and organic with a real appreciation for farm-to-table cuisine. The Ferry Building Marketplace is where local foodies head for their fresh ingredients, wines, olive oils, and more delectables. Though it’s a little trendier, I also liked my visit to Union Square; it was a great place for dining and shopping in the city.

San Francisco was just such an astounding place to visit. I loved being in the fray when I wanted to be and still having the option to escape within Golden Gate Park when I needed a break. These were my favorites, but what do you think are the best things about living in San Francisco?
