Stock photos of San Francisco, USA

I've visited San Francisco twice, and I love the place. When the weather is clear, you can hire a bike and cycle along the front of the bay and across the Golden Gate Bridge, catching the ferry back. As well as iconic tourist destinations such as Alcatraz, the cable cars and the bridges, San Francisco houses an impressive museum of coin operated amusements, a huge Chinatown, and striking architecture. Here are my photos and tips for visiting San Francisco.
