The list of attractions in San Francisco reads like an all-star holiday checklist, topped by the Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz Island, Fisherman's Wharf and the cable cars. Visitors to San Francisco are never far from one of the many attractions that has put this city on the bay on the map. One of the distinctive local attractions is the Haight area of the city. Once synonymous with hippies and the counter-culture, today the corner of Haight and Ashbury Street is a confluence of modern, trendy shops and piercing salons and alternative bookstores. San Francisco is well known for its support of alternative lifestyles, as is evidenced with the annual Bay to Breakers Run, which routinely sees families and frat boys pounding the pavement next to nudists and artists. Film enthusiasts flock to the San Francisco International Film Festival, which occurs in April and features over 200 acclaimed films from around the world.
