San Francisco tourist attraction summary

San Francisco is a really beautiful city. With much activities going on and it is on a bay area, there are much attraction to see. When come to San Francisco, one will not miss to step on the Golden Gate Bridge. Walking to the bridge is a challenge for me as it is quite far and the strong wind when on the bridge itself. Moreover, I do this at night! The bridge is not only famous for its amazing abilities to withstand strong wind and strong current from the Pacific Ocean below, but it was one of the most famous places to commit suicide too. When walking on the bridge, can see that there are many phones along the way as a suicide prevention hotline.

San Francisco does have its own problem. In some area, there are too many beggars and makes a place no safe to visit. I do wonder why the authorities there didn't take any action on those beggars.
