Golden Gate Bridge

<p>There is perhaps no San Franciscan icon more famous than the Golden Gate Bridge. Connecting San Francisco to Marin in the north, the bridge was built in 1937 and has been named by the American Society of Civil Engineers as one of the Wonders of the Modern World. It owes its signature color to the fact that a fresh coat of &Ograve;international orange&Oacute; paint is applied to it each year. This shade of orange is easily visible through the city&Otilde;s all-too familiar fog. The 1.7 mile-long bridge is open to cars as well as pedestrians and cyclists.</p>

Dolores Park

<p>A more recent addition to San Francisco&Otilde;s collection of iconic and eclectic places, Dolores Park is a centerpiece of the city&Otilde;s outdoor activity. Sunny days see the park filled with sunbathers, picnickers, and a multitude of outdoor performances and interactive displays. There are Film Nights in the Park, Saturday morning yoga sessions, mime troupes, and a variety of other activities to watch out for. The park is located between the Mission and Castro neighborhoods and, thanks to San Francisco&Otilde;s microclimates, it's often one of the warmest and sunniest parts of the city.</p>

Coit Tower

<p>For one of the most stunning views in the city, visit Coit Tower on top of Telegraph Hill. Getting to the tower involves either a trip through the North Beach Italian district, or a trek up the Filbert Steps through the residential gardens, which are home to the celebrated "Wild Parrots of Telegraph Hill." Inside the tower, are frescoes and murals dedicated to political movements and scenes of the bay. These interior murals are open to the public for viewing, but the site is perhaps just as famous for the exterior panorama. From the top of the hill, visitors to Coit Tower can see everything from Alcatraz to the Bay Bridge and beyond to the rest of the Bay Area.</p>
