San Francisco, a city on the tip of a peninsula and is commonly known for its hilly landscape, year-round fog and the iconic Golden Gate. The place is famous for its fog, and that fog comes in through the ocean so even on the warmest days of the year, a chill can usually be felt in the ocean air.

Not too many people choose to go for swimming in the beaches here, and those who do often wear wetsuits to keep out the cold. But the picturesque sights and sounds here are itself an adventure for any traveller.
