Founded all the way back in 1776, San Francisco is among the oldest west coast cities in America, and it shows in their classic style of architecture. One of the most famous attractions in San Francisco, and the only moving U.S. National Historic Landmark, are the San Francisco Cable Cars, which double as both a landmark and a handy way of getting around the city! Other world famous attractions include Alcatraz Island, Fisherman’s Wharf, and The Golden Gate Bridge along with Golden Gate Park, Chinatown, Union Square, The San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, and the Ghirardelli Chocolate Factory, among many others!
