San Francisco

The city by the bay will steal your heart. Full of distinct and vibrant neighborhoods like The Castro, considered the world's gay capital, gay San Francisco boasts historical LGBT sites as well as a thriving nightlife. Union Square is host to nearly every designer label, remnants of gay San Francisco's hippie movement can be found in Haight-Ashbury, and some of the best clam chowder around can be found at Fisherman's Wharf. And don’t forget an escape to Alcatraz Island. Whether you picnic in the park near Golden Gate Bridge or take a California Street cable car, San Francisco has something for everyone.
