Around here, peoples just call it "The City." San Francisco is a fun, weird, and crazy expensive place to live. Thankfully, our day jobs keep us away from the city limits of San Francisco proper; we spend our time in the eastern and southern parts of the Bay.
We do frequently head into the City for weekend excursions or for a special dinner. When friends visit, we always make a point of showing them all of the unique attractions that San Francisco has to offer. The photos here come from a number of "touristy" locations around the Bay: Alcatraz, Coit Tower, Pier 39, Union Square, the Marin Headlands, Golden Gate Park, and Napa Valley.
