Sights and Sounds

California, San Francisco, Section 4, The Sights. Probably more famous than anything else in the city are the tourists attractions. Each one has its roots and history only making the city a better place to live. Here's a top 5 list for places you gotta visit if you stop by:

Chinatown: Sorry to all the haters but there is no place better in the city for me than Chinatown. There's always so much going on here and so many people walking around, its ridiculous. I grew up going to Chinatown all the time. Yes, I know, its not exactly the cleanest place in the world. But the food along with the people make it the heart of the city for me. Throw up some shout outs if you grew up in the Willy Woo Woo too.

Golden Gate Bridge: It's the most iconic symbol of San Francisco and its free to walk across. I can't say the toll to drive across has been nice as of late, but it is a nice landmark. I mean, seriously who in the world thinks about painting a bridge orange. Only thing I frown on are the jumpers, but who doesn't like being on the news...

AT&T Park: If you're from Southern California you might want to skip this section. This is probably the greatest place in the world to watch my beloved San Francisco Giants. I love the roar of the crowd here and the stomping on the steel bleachers. Kick back on a warm summer afternoon, Sheboygan Bratwurst with all the fixings, ice cold soda, side of garlic fries- nothing better.

Coit Tower: The climb up this hill is totally worth it to see the view across the bay. On a sunny day you can see the Marin Headleads far off in the distance. It's a bit of a rip off to pay to go up the tower but why not try it at least once in your life. One of the best places to feel a cool breeze on a hot day.

Lombard Street: Just drive down this thing. Have fun, make the minute last, you're in San Francisco.

Extras: Twin Peaks (360 views of SF), Cliff House (Nice view of the beach), Transamerican Building (its not as pointy as you think), Cable cars (ding ding, how could you go wrong?)
