San Francisco

Every gay person has to visit San Francisco at least once. A historic city for the LGBT Rights movement, SF is where Harvey Milk, "The Mayor of Castro Street," became the first openly gay publicly elected official before his assassination in 1978. Long known as Northern California's haven for writers, artists, thinkers, and LGBT people, San Francisco has emerged as the North American home base for gay leather and fetish culture, and still holds the annual Folsom Street Fair in the city's historically kinky South of Market district. For the more vanilla traveller, the city offers gorgeous parks (Dolores Park in the Mission features the most beautiful view of the city) and breathtaking ferry rides across the bay.
