I Left My Heart in San Francisco

Charlotte Bright, Cub Reporter

Imagine that you’re sitting at home and bored out of your mind. Well, I might have a solution for you. I want you to take this short quiz, and don’t worry, you’re not graded. Decision A would be to stay at home and stare at the wall until you fall asleep, but decision B would be going to one of the most loved cities in the world. If you chose B, then keep reading to find out the beloved city that I’m referring to. This city is San Francisco, California, the home of the Golden Gate bridge, Castro street, and much, much more.

Do you love pixar? The school that Inside Out based their setting off of is in the middle of Noe Valley. It’s called James Lick Middle school, and is still working as of 2016.

“I love it here. If i had the opportunity to move anywhere else, even somewhere big and bold like New York City or London, I’d stay right here. It has such a warm feeling of home,” said local resident Kiley Maloney..

San Francisco has been popular for many years, so why write a story like this now? Well, it’s simple. The city has been a major part of tourism in California, and almost everyone knows that. But, not everyone knows where to go when they get there. They think that it could be fun, but they have no idea what they’re missing. That’s what this article is for.

A great place to begin your journey through the wonderous streets of San Francisco would be the Marina. There’s great food, one-of-a-kind shops, and an amazing view of the Presidio, Golden Gate Bridge, and the Bay. You could spend hours just walking around and people-watching, or go to the museums if that’s your thing.

It seems like everyone tells you to go to places like Pier 39, or the Golden Gate lookout, but the places that aren’t as well-known and maybe even a little hidden are always the best. Like the Walt Disney Museum, the Haight, Castro St. and more. They are just so much more vibrant and definitely not as crowded.

“If I had the chance to go back, I would, because of the Disney Museum,” said sophomore Anna Patricelli.

This shows that even if you’ve gone before, there really are things to do that you never knew existed. I told her that the Walt Disney Museum existed, so she changed her answer from not wanting to go back, to wanting to go back.
