San Francisco

Our scrapbook notes about San Francisco

When you think San Francisco you may be reminded of films featuring either the Golden Gate Bridge or the famous roads lining the edges of this great city. San Francisco is the kind of place you really need to rent a car in, which, to be fair, can be said for most of California. Everything is spread out and there are a ridiculous number of hills.

However, renting a car can still be done on a backpacker budget, making this city still accessible for backpackers. San Fran is a great location to explore typical Californian culture, imagine young adults skateboarding towards the sun, and large open parks great for ice cream and organic Californian food. San Francisco is known for its great grub so make sure to go out of your way to try this city's food washed down with a bottle of two of the Californian wine.
