Although not a likely a famous tourist spot, San Francisco is where you will find the headquarters for many technology companies including the infamous rideshare companies Uber and Lyft. If you're looking for a nice city to move, you may want to consider San Francisco as it was rated high in the world livability rankings, and has a per capita average income of over $100,000.
A trip to San Francisco isn't complete without doing a tour of the Golden Gate Bridge. It is a one-of-a-kind sight to see, but nothing compares to doing a bike or walking tour across the bridge, while of course taking many pictures along the way! Make sure to go on a day that's not too foggy, so you can still witness the awesome view of this stunning landmark.
