As the most visited city in the Bay Area and a world-renowned tourist destination, San Francisco offers many attractions for residents, executives, and vacationers alike. Whether walking along Ocean Beach, paddle boating in Golden Gate Park, enjoying free concerts in Stern Grove eating soup out of a sourdough bowl in Fisherman's Wharf, or experiencing the variety of galleries, shows, clubs, and restaurants the city has to offer, San Francisco will capture your heart.
The diversity of San Francisco's history can be felt in the many different neighborhoods that make up this seven-mile wide coastal city. Commuters and visitors find their way around by bicycle, cable car, bus, light rail (MUNI), foot and car. In addition, San Francisco is conveniently linked to the surrounding counties by bus, ferry, light rail (BART), and a network of bridges.
Leave San Francisco and in an hour be in the Napa wine country, surfing in Santa Cruz, hiking on Mt. Diablo, or eating artisan cheese in Pt. Reyes. And as Mark Twain said, "the coldest winter I ever spent was a summer in San Francisco." Dress in layers, then the summer fog and Indian summer days won't be a surprise.
