The city by the bay is one of the greatest cities on the West Coast, and is famous for being an exciting and tolerant place to be, with a varied range of different cultures and communities living side by side. The city itself is set on an island that is connected to the mainland by two large bridges, and these have also become an iconic part of the city which is covered in the virtual tour of San Francisco city center. The cinematic virtual reality really helps to convey the atmosphere and the spectacular sights of the city, from the grand man made constructions to the natural beauty of the coastline and the island.
See The Golden Gate Bridge
One of the world’s most famous bridges, almost everyone who takes a virtual tour of San Francisco city’s sights will see the large red towers that support the bridge, which is particularly impressive on foggy mornings when the towers rise through the fog. The bridge carries the six lane highway of Route 101 from the mainland to the island of San Francisco itself, with the span of the bridge over 1,300 meters long. This is widely considered to be one of the beautiful bridges in the world, and the view from the bridge itself is also recreated in the virtual tour.
While many cities have a Chinatown area, the large Chinese community in San Francisco is famous for being the largest such Chinese community outside mainland China, which has helped this area to become a real attraction. The cinematic virtual reality helps to represent the pagoda style roofs of the area very well, along with showing the bustling markets and the tables with people playing mahjong. The area is also home to an interesting fortune cookie factory that prepares 20,000 cookies every day, and the pedestrianized alleyway which is named after beat poet Jack Kerouac.
Visit The Palace Of Fine Arts
At close to a century old, this beautiful building in the Marina district of the city is one of the most visited in the city, and is an important part of the virtual reality tour of San Francisco‘s sights. Having been built for the Panama-Pacific Exposition in 1915, it was aimed to exhibit the works of art that were being displayed there at the time. The palace lies on the shores of an artificial lagoon, and takes inspiration from ancient Greek and Roman culture, and is still one of the most popular attractions in the city.
The Island Prison Of Alcatraz
There are few prisons in the world that can claim to be as famous as Alcatraz, the prison that is built on an island in the bay off the main island of San Francisco. The prison was rumored to be inescapable, and many of the most dangerous prisoners in the country were housed there, while today it is a museum. This has also been recreated in stunning cinematic virtual reality, and is a fascinating part of the history of San Francisco.
