TOP 10 MUST-SEE SPOTS IN SAN FRANCISCO



Several years ago, I lived in California for a little more than a year and one of my favorite locations to visit was Fisherman's Wharf. There is so much to see and do! Food and beverage is a centric part of any travel experience no matter where you are, and San Francisco is a hotspot of producing world-renowned wines! If you've never experienced dim sum, there's no better place in California to try it than San Francisco. Despite what you may think, not all of the best dim sum is in Chinatown. All over the city, you will find restaurants that are serving traditional dim sum in new ways. From old-school parlors who are passing dumplings around on a cart to upscale eateries who are pushing the boundaries, dim sum is a staple in the city's food scene!

If you're just passing through and get hungry during your drive, there are no shortage of places to eat. Along the coast, you'll find plenty of restaurants serving up local dishes with a spectacular view!
