That also happens to be the two issues that irritate visitors the very most about our fair city, as confirmed by a recent San Francisco Travel Association survey.

Tourists boast of our obvious gems — stellar scenic beauty, one-of-a-kind restaurants, and a gay and lesbian scene that's off the hook.
