Favourite City: San Francisco
Why: The Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz, Chinatown, a dramatic setting with its steep rolling hills and interesting architecture. There’s so much to do in the city and it’s a great starting point for many other adventures – the Napa Valley, Pacific Coast Highway, Yosemite National Park – to name but a few. History tells you that there is often something dramatic taking place, from the gold rush of the 1800s, the 1970s hippies to today’s tech unicorns, it is a city that never stays the same.
