A trip to San Francisco has always been a treat. We used to travel there regularly for work-related conferences but now we only get there every few years. However, it is one of those places I like to visit but would not want to live. Growing up in the Salt River Valley has made me appreciate cities with mostly flat land and wide, straight streets. Granted, some of the streets in San Francisco are straight, for a few blocks until they cross into a new section but Phoenix streets run for miles. I guess I also like the desert although the oceans do have some attractions.
