San Francisco – Essentials

Additionally, biking the city is quite common as long as you are clear on the route and the directions – remember that the city consists of many steep hills. While generally safe, the city is quite large and as a result visitors should pay attention to their surroundings and ensure they do not end up in rough neighborhoods. A little advanced planning will help ensure a fun and safe visit to San Francisco.
