San Francisco - The second best

I have visited San Francisco for the July long weekend and I have reached a landmark of visiting 27 states in US with this trip.

SFO is absolutely amazing city. I have rated Boston as the second best city in US before this visit. But Boston lost its rating after my visit to SFO.:-P

The best thing I liked in SFO is the transporation. They have all types of vehicles under the sun like bus, cable car, ferry, train etc. The city is always lively and happening.

We have visited places like Alcatraz Island, Stanford university, Ghirardelli chocolate factory, Crooked street, Silicon valley, Half moon bay beach and Golden Gate bridge etc.
Over all it was nice trip, but got tanned a lot due to California weather. It took 3 weeks for me to come back to my original color.:)

Below is my rating of US cities I have visited till now.

1. New York(may be always 1)
2. San Francisco
3. Boston
4. Chicago
5. Atlanta
6. Seattle
7. Washington DC
8. Providence
9. Portland
10. Charlotte
11. Raleigh
12. Ashville
13. Pittsburg
14. Minneapolis
15. Richmond
16. Milwaukee
17. Newark

Interesting, is it?. What is your rating if you are in US?

Check out some photos below of SFO.

You are so fortunate to be able to visit so many cities in the US. Not too many people are accorded such privilege. Thanks for the post. God bless.

By "state" I mean the mental state of you....that has always been just one....

What is so good about Hyderabad and how do you compare it to San Francisco...I think the readers will like to read about it

Jaggu said...

@ceedy
I did not compare. I just said that the feeling of home town is different with other cities, because you will feel like in home.

Hi, great knowing this.....so, what's happening apart from visitng places?

Jaggu said...

@m.flowerr
Ha ha. Also I am working hard at my job. Whats going on with you? What r u doing these days?

ceedy said...

But what if one is not able to go home for a long time....do you call the new place home or simply keep remembering what is not there?

I need to see Hyderabad before commenting.......

Jaggu said...

@ceedy
