S‎an Francisco is a multicultural city located in Californie, in the north Bay Area. This city is divided in 3 different parts, the golden gate park, the city center, and the residence area.

The golden gate park goes from Haight Ashbury all the way to the beach! This park contains seven museums, as the De Young museum or the science museum and it is a beautiful green park to practice sport or hang out.

The city center includes union square which is the shopping center of San Francisco, it also includes lots of restaurents and hotels which make it a touristic area. The city center also contains China Town, famous for its dragon gate; then  the fishermen wharf where you can find the ferry building which is full of food shops and restaurants. When you’re in the city center you can also drive through the lombard street.

SF has many means of transportation‎. The most typical one is the market street rail which is a kind of cable car. There is also a subway that goes from SF to Oakland. SF has bikes that you can rent. Then, because SF is on the océan side, they have ferries to go, for instance, to Alcatraz as we did.

But the cool means of transportation in SF is obviously the skateboard (Glenn!).
