The Culture, the Art, the City
It's one of the most artistically rich cities in the United States, and each of its more than 100 diverse neighborhoods offer a unique flavor to residents and visitors alike. Commonly referred to as the Paris of the West, San Francisco is one of the most popular metropolitan vacation spots in the world. Similar to most European cities, it boasts the arts and culture that richly influence its populous. It would take days to properly tour the city and experience its wealth of restaurants, museums, parks, beaches, historical landmarks, and so much more. The city is one of the few in the world that can offer urbanites a swath of public transportation options, including the San Francisco Municipal Railway - more affectionately known as the Muni. As part of the Muni, the city's trademark, historic streetcar line and cable cars are one of the more exciting ways to navigate its busy streets and districts. But nothing beats exploring the boulevards of San Francisco by foot - the true way to appreciate the city's every eccentricity.
