Situated at the northern tip of the San Francisco Peninsula, San Francisco is surrounded by water. The Pacific Ocean swells on the West, and the San Francisco Bay to the East. Connecting these two bodies of water together is the Golden Gate strait. There’s also a pretty famous bridge that spans across the strait of the same name; heard of it before?
