Why John Steinbeck called it the Golden handcuff… with the key thrown away

With so many things to love about San Francisco it is hard to think about leaving. Don’t get me wrong there are plenty of reasons to visit and create new adventures all over the world. Yet San Francisco has it’s own unique magical spice. From it’s forever competitive spirit with LA… to the largest per capita area of restaurants in the country, with no where to go but up. Being bored just simply isn’t an option here. Images why you will love San Francisco 

Some of the best things to do…. make San Francisco one of the best cities in the world. From salted carmel ice cream, to street art in the mission, how Walt Disney got started, what “farm to table” cuisine actually means and how it specifically evolved in Northern California, Blue Bottle coffee, why we love our parades and why hands down SF is better than LA. Try our favorite bakery, Tartine, see our unofficial city mascot the sea lion, eat a burrito and then walk across the golden gate bridge to walk it off… With 29 things SF residents love and a year around calendar of events. It simply never gets old even if the coldest winter you ever spend is actually a summer in San Francisco, there are reasons why you leave your heart here.

“You know what it is? San Francisco is a golden handcuff with the key thrown away.”~ John Steinbeck

“Leaving San Francisco is like saying goodbye to an old sweetheart. You want to linger as long as possible. ” Walter Cronkite

“The ultimate [travel destination] for me would be one perfect day in San Francisco. There’s no city like it anywhere. And, if I could be there with the girl of my dreams, that would be the ultimate!”~Larry King

and when you do finally need to leave… A farewell Letter to San Francisco – “I will never tire from exploring you, San Francisco you will be missed!”

You may say farewell from time to time….                                        

but you never fully say good bye…
