The Bay Bridge, which connects the cities of San Francisco and Oakland, opened in 1936, a year earlier than San Francisco's other famous suspension bridge, the Golden Gate Bridge. Today, it is a major traffic artery with 260,000 cars passing through daily. Although it is not a major tourist attraction, it is well known for its beautiful night view.
San Francisco is a city of hills on a peninsula facing the Pacific Ocean in northern California. It is well known for the beautiful Golden Gate Bridge spanning the strait and the nostalgic cable cars running up the steep hill. The Financial District, one of the world's leading financial centers, Little Italy and Chinatown, which tell the story of immigration, are just a few of the vibrant attractions of this metropolis.
