California is a really big state so, we only got the chance to see the San Francisco Area since we were only there for 10 days. The San Francisco area is one of the four main parts of California and one of the top most visited places in the United States. The places that we’ve been to are San Francisco, Fremont, Daly City, Sausalito and San Jose.
From New Jersey, it took us about 6 hours by plane to San Francisco City.
This is the view on the porch of my uncle’s house in San Francisco City.
Aside from rich history, San Francisco is also famous for its spectacular nature. So, on our first day, we had a picnic in the park and found this dog interested to join us.
This was the longest non-pool slide I’ve ever been to!
San Francisco downtown! I like it better than NYC since it is less crowded.
This is the San Francisco City Hall. Its dome is the fifth largest in the world.

This is the Castro Pride Flag and the bus that we always ride to downtown.
This is Lombard Street, the world’s most crooked street. This place is amazing! My uncle told me that it was made that way because before, when donkeys are still used to bring loads, they can’t climb a steep way.
Sausalito, CA. The drive from San Francisco is about 30 minutes.

Tadaa! I’m with the iconic Golden Gate Bridge!
We also got up-close to the bridge when we rode the ferry that went under it. It was fun.

I wish I could keep the bridge in my pocket. Haha!
This is the Alcatraz Island, one of the most infamous prisons in the country for housing notorious criminals. It is located in the middle of San Francisco Bay.
According to the tour guide, there were 14 attempts to escape from Alcatraz prison and every escape attempt failed. However, there was a set of inmates who tried to escape and left no trace.

The Ocean beach, the coldest beach I’ve been to!
I wonder if the dog is feeling cold, too. Haha!
