San Francisco

The hilly terrain of San Francisco makes it one of the most unique cities to visit. Take a drive or a stroll along Lombard Street, famed for its steepness and sharp curves. The Golden Gate Bridge is one of the most famous and beautiful suspension bridges in the world. And a short ferry ride will take visitors to Alcatraz, the toughest prison ever built. "The Rock" may be closed for business, but today it's one of the most popular tourist attractions in San Francisco, where visitors can spend a minute in cells just like the ones that used to house notorious criminals such as Al Capone and George "Machine Gun" Kelly.
