San Francisco

San Francisco, perched at the edge of the continent, is truly one of the world's great cities. It's the heart of the San Francisco Bay Area, a port city with saltwater in her veins, gold fever in her past, and the danger of earthquakes whispering in her ears. The city is small, with 750,000 residents nestled within a seven-by-seven-mile tip of land between San Francisco Bay and the Pacific Ocean. Like any great city, San Francisco is recognizable by her famous landmarks. Who doesn't instantly identify San Francisco when they see the Golden Gate Bridge, the TransAmerica Pyramid, Lombard Street or Cable Cars!
