San Francisco, California

San Francisco is a city driven by the love everyone, hippie mentality. If this isn’t your cup of tea, stay tuned! I hope to convince you in a few short paragraphs that San Francisco is for everyone.

Looking for a family activity? San Francisco offers that. At the California Academy of Sciences I found myself swimming in a world of exotic fish, plants, birds and more! Did you know there is such a thing as an African Penguin? I sure didn’t until I visited this educational museum. Just when you think you’ve seen it all, head to the Living Roof to step into a world straight out of a scene from Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory.

Looking for a sophisticated afternoon? San Francisco offers that. Strolling past Salvador Dali originals and expansive installation pieces, it dawned on me. “Chelsea, you’re not in Oklahoma any more!” You simply do not get exposed to this quality of art very often in life, which is why the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art is a can’t-miss attraction. I could have spent hours staring at one painting, but the good news is that you don’t have to! They allow photos to be taken in the museum.

Looking for the quintessential hippy afternoon? San Francisco offers that. I’m not telling anyone anything new when I say this, but San Francisco is full of psychedelic charm. Honestly, seeing Haight Ashbury street in person was a huge thrill. Reflecting on all the American history that took place in this district will give you that emotion. If you’re feeling tired after roaming the streets there is always a nice park with a comfortable plot of grass waiting for you and your afternoon nap.
