Golden Gate Bridge
4.6/5

Bridge
As a globally renowned single-span suspension bridge, Golden Gate Bridge is the symbol and landmark of San Francisco. The Bridge spans the entire San Francisco Bay and the Golden Gate strait of the Pacific Ocean, making it an important transportation hub linking San Francisco and cities to the north. Many US movies and TV shows have been filmed here. The north of the Bridge is an ideal site to take a panoramic picture of the structure; and its bright orange arch seems shrouded in mystery in foggy days; the Bridge's southern side is more suitable for a close-up snapshot of the water and the body of the Bridge. If the schedule allows, you can rent a bicycle and experience a more unique view while riding the length of the Bridge.
Lombard Street
4.5/5
942 Reviews
Featured Neighborhood
Lombard Street is so named for its multiple hairpin turns. The 40 degree inclination here poses a serious challenge to driving skills. The whole street is paved with bricks and lined on either side with foliage as well as multicolored flowers, offering diverse views all around the year. A peculiar crooked way can be photographed at the lower end of the street. The distant San Francisco - Oakland Bay Bridge and the Alcatraz Island can be viewed from high up in the Lombard Street, making it an ideal spot to take a snapshot of perfect harmony of streetscape and ocean view. Heading all the way north along the Lombard Street will take one to Fisherman's Wharf, a place to savor gourmet food and splurge on shopping.

The United States is now the global epicenter for the COIVD-19 pandemic. New York City is particularly impacted with more than a quarter of the country’s confirmed cases. Governors in over than 30 states have issued so-called shelter-in-place orders. Large swaths of the US economy have ground to a halt as non-essential businesses are shuttered and cultural institutions like theaters, museums, and art galleries have closed to prevent people gathering in large numbers. Leading scientists are now estimating the pandemic could kill between 100,000 and 240,000 people in the United States. This shocking assessment means travel and tourism in the United States is nearly impossible for the next 3 to 6 months. Those with plans to travel to the United States should reconsider and those already there need to follow the advice of local health officials and the World Health Organization.
