A Short Visit to San Francisco Bay Area, CA


San Francisco Bay is one of California’s most popular regions spread across the city of San Francisco and the surrounding counties. San Francisco is famous for its Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz Island, Steep Streets, Golden Gate Park, Pier 39, Union Square, and many more. The Bay Area is also home to Silicon Valley and Wine Country.

We only had half a day, so we only made a couple of quick stops to get a glimpse of SFO. These decade old photos are from our visit to SFO in early April 2010. Time to visit again!
