Everywhere you look, everywhere you go there’s a heart, a hand to hold onto.

San Francisco … It’s pretty easy to leave your heart in the city by the Bay.

Join us this summer in San Francisco to ride over the Golden Gate Bridge, explore Alcatraz, bark at the sea lions off of Pier 39, ride a cable car, devour Ghirardelli chocolates at Ghirardelli square, and so much more!

And … some San Francisco fun facts:

1. Denim jeans were invented in San Francisco for the Gold Rush miners who needed tough, comfortable clothing.

2. There are over three hundred coffee houses within the city boundaries of San Francisco

3. Al Capone spent five years in prison in Alcatraz.

4. San Francisco is built on 43 hills.

5. The crookedest street is not Lombard Street , Vermont Avenue between 22nd and 23rd is the “crookedest,” Filbert between Hyde and Leavenworth is the steepest street at 31.5 degrees.

6. Soon after the Golden Gate Park opened in 1890, John McLaren, the park’s designer added a free-range zoo that was home to elk, bears, goats, and buffalo. The buffalo are the only ones that remain.
