San Francisco (Pick Word #18)


After Visiting in Amsterdam, we can fly away to our next City Tour destination. The flight will take us to the west coast of the US, to San Francisco. San Francisco was founded in 1776 by Jose Joaquin Moraga and Francisco Palou and became the 14th most populated city in USA with over 800,000 citizens . The city is known for its Golden Gate, its important financial district and even the prison island called Alcatraz which is located not far from San Francisco's shoreline. In music, it was the birth place of some great bands like The Greatful Dead, Jefferson Airplane, Metallica and Faith No More. Moreover, many songs were written about this beautiful city, five of them by Foxygen, Arctic Monkeys, Chris Isaak, Camera Obscura and Scott Mckenzie, you can hear right here below....
