The Giants. Fisherman’s Wharf. The Golden Gate Bridge. What do all of these have in common? They’re in the city of San Francisco. When traveling to California, you may have a visit to the city on your itinerary. But before you start planning, let’s look at a few reasons why you might want to avoid San Francisco and enjoy the outlying areas instead. From potholes to poop, it’s not the most ideal location for a vacation.
San Francisco is located along the central coast of California. The San Francisco Bay includes the cities of Oakland, San Jose, and San Francisco. In addition, Alcatraz Island, Angel Island State Park, and Treasure Island all make their homes in the San Francisco Bay.
The fourth most populous city in California, San Francisco is home to over 873,000 residents. It’s the 17th largest city in America. Other big industries besides the city government are finance and banking, technology, biotechnology, and medical research.
1. Traffic And Road Infrastructure Are Terrible Los Angeles traffic is well-known for hours and hours of delays. San Francisco isn’t much better. And to add to the terrible commute are the horrible road conditions. Potholes are everywhere.
