San Francisco’s travel association and city, county and state efforts dedicated $9 billion in 2017 alone to the coastal California city’s tourism spending -- a prominent recognition of the growing global destination this seaside spot has become. Every day that year, approximately 69,000 visitors were welcomed into the area with an approximate spending of almost $25 million each day to accommodate those guests. According to avid traveler and budding travel blogger Kathy Petrino, these vast expenditures dedicated to tourism demonstrate San Francisco’s place among international travel.
With one of the most photographed and famous landmarks in the world at its center -- the Golden Gate Bridge -- San Francisco also boasts other notable landmarks across the city. Petrino noted the famed Alcatraz prison, Chinatown, Fisherman’s Wharf, the Castro District and the city’s historic cable cars. Also notable, said Kathy Petrino, are the rolling hills that create the city -- cities dotted with unique architecture, intriguing neighborhoods and beautiful views of the Pacific Ocean. Add the cool climate and frequent fog to the mix, San Fran becomes a city of mystery and romance, aiding its colorful and rich past. Petrino notes that this coastal destination is able to annually increase its visitor count due to this inherent beauty as well as fabulous food fare and a historic diversity unlike most other locations in the country.
