“Fog City” as many like to call San Francisco, is a beautiful city right in the middle of the state of California, the crown jewel of what is known as The Bay Area.
Graced by the lovely Golden Gate Bridge and surrounded on three sides by water, this compact metropolis is chock full of culture and history, all set within charming neighborhoods and warm architecture, often with fantastic views of hills and the ocean.
Despite its big-city feel, San Francisco has a fairly modest population of about 890,000, making it the 4th largest in California. Whether visitors are seeking the great foodie scene, the awesome music scene, or the innovative museums, this is a place that can appeal to almost anyone. Many of the classic neighborhoods in town include iconic names like Chinatown, The Embarcadero, Haight-Ashbury, The Tenderloin, The Mission, Fisherman’s Wharf, Nob Hill and Golden Gate Park. Bay City destinations nearby include Berkeley, Sausalito, Oakland, San Jose and Palo Alto.
