Are you due for a vacation or romantic getaway? You don’t have to go overseas or to a tropical island to have the time of your life — especially since the coronavirus has greatly hindered travel. When things begin to get back to normal, you should visit one of the crown-jewel cities of the United States: San Francisco.
The “Golden City” is more than a great tourist attraction. It’s a world-class city with much to offer in terms of career choices and business opportunities. It’s also a great place to move to if you’re in search of lifestyle changes such as healthier living. Continue reading to learn 5 reasons you should at least visit — if not move to — San Fran.
The Farmer’s Market
With the recent rise in healthy and organic foods, farmer’s markets have significantly increased in popularity throughout the United States. You may already frequent the farmer’s market in your local area, but not every place is San Francisco. Their farmer’s markets are as unique as the city itself.
The Ferry Building Farmer’s market is a tourist must-see. It’s open three days a week, so you don’t have to worry about missing out! But if you want to live like a local for a few days — which is one of the most fun things to do as a tourist — check out the Alemany Farmer’s Market. It’s only open on Saturdays, but it’s teeming with fresh Northern Cali produce as well as handcrafted goods. After a trip to the “City by the Bay,” and you’ll never look at farmer’s markets the same again.
Improve Your Health
One of the great advantages of San Francisco being a hub of technology development is that it’s also on the cutting in many medical disciplines. People visit San Fran for everything from rehabilitation to major surgical procedures.
If you’re struggling with obesity and looking to reach your weight loss goals, then Frisco could be the ideal place for you. It has a vibrant, active, outdoorsy culture. The city also places a greater emphasis on healthy, organic eating than most cities as well. In addition, walking the rolling hills will go a long way towards getting your heart-rate up. Those lifestyle changes in themselves could be paradigm-shifting.
You have a clinical weight management problem or are morbidly obese, then your health could be at serious risk. Places like the JumpstartMD weight loss clinic in Embarcadero Center [located at R-1203, San Francisco, CA 94111 415-438-4999] offers a variety of procedures and treatment plans that can help you shed significant weight.
Is China one of the places you’ve always wanted to visit? You may not be able to take that trip any time soon, but San Francisco has the next best thing: Chinatown.
The Chinatown district is as much a part of the Golden City’s history as the Golden Gate Bridge and trolleys. It was founded in the middle of the 19th century, and it has been bustling ever since.
Take a Trip to Wine Country
You’re not really taking advantage of the San Francisco experience if you don’t journey out to the area fondly known as Wine Country. While it’s not in the city, it’s only a scenic, hour-long drive on a weekday.
If you choose to make the drive during the weekend, then you’ll probably face closer to a two-hour trip. Despite the length of the journey, there’s much beauty to see along the way — and the destination isn’t too bad, either.
