    Seafood chowder in bread bowls on the dock of the Bay...and driving over the Golden Gate on a misty morning!

    I don't live there, but I went to visit my best friend who is a resident and I couldn't get over the 'looooooong' drive from the airport over the S.F Bay's bridge. Driving over that body of water for over 30 minutes, was scary and awesome at the same time!

    I also love the trolley transportation system, and going to 'China Town'.

      When I first arrinved in California and needed to drive across the Bay area this was an incredible route of bridges like none I had ever experienced before.  Crossing the Bay was a beautiful freeflight for me.

    I think I was most impressed by Chinatown.  I mean....San Francisco is a pretty European like city...and then once you are a block into Chinatown....it is like you are suddenly in Eastern Asia...

    I love the views of the bay from a variety of spots within the city from the Golden Gate to bay facing windows in high rise buildings. A clear sunny day on San Francisco is a wonderful site to see.

    I loved Fishermans wharf, cruising around the harbour close to the Golden Gate bridge then exploring Alcatraz as I had seen movies set there . I was filmed as I walked thru the prison for an ad for an airline lol ! When you see a place on tv then visit there it is a great experience and then brings back memories everytime you see it again !!

      I haven't toured Alcatraz yet but have enjoyed seeing it across the Bay as the fog slowly lifts.  Thanks for sharing your answer.

    I was in S.F. a few years back and the things that I loved the most, or remembered about the area, was visiting the famous Chiardelli chocolate factory and being able to get a breathtaking glimpse of Alcatraz  on SF Bay and the Golden Gate Bridge off in the distance. Also we embarked on a nice tour of the Napa Valley winery area a few hours away and a bit warmer then SF itself.

    One thing? Makes it way too difficult!
    If I had to choose, I would try and cheat by saying its diversity, which would encompass everything from the different cultures there to individual personalities to how much good food there is. And all packed into what is really not a large city, less than a million people.

      When you visit San Francisco it is such a wonderful thing to spend a little time sitting on one of the waterfront pier benches and just people watch.  Be sure to listen too for there are so many visitors speaking many languages.

    I loved most everything about S.F.  I loved the drive across the Golden Gate Bridge, the restaurants, walking through Fisherman's Wharf, people watching...it's just got a great ambience.

    I love to get off BART at the Powell St station and look up as I go up the escalator.  Then I love to be at the top of Powell St and look down.  San Francisco is like a roller coaster with its ups and downs. Thrilling.

    Actually, I've only been through San Francisco on a rather meandering driving tour one time; but without a doubt the one thing I absolutely love about San Francisco is that my wife Annie was born there.
