Fisherman's Wharf in San Francisco City and County, California — The American West (Pacific Coastal)
San Francisco's Most Popular Postcard.
Right. The Crookedest Street in the World.
Why the Golden Gate Bridge is not the front-runner in postcard sales is somewhat of a mystery. Named year after year as the most recognizable and most beautiful American landmark, the Golden Gate Bridge continues to awe visitors and locals alike with its man-made elegance and strength.
Completed in 1937 at a cost of 37 million dollars, the bridge not only plays host to cars, but also to joggers, roller skaters, bike riders and just plain old walkers out for a leisurely stroll across the Bay. Those who make it all the way to the Marin County side of the Golden Gate are rewarded with the finest overall view of San Francisco available.
But then, the view from the top of The Crookedest Street in the World isn't too shabby, either.
