About San Francisco

San Francisco is one of the most attractive cities in the US. Founded by the Spanish colonists in the 18-century, the city of fog and rolling hills is situated on a peninsula surrounded by the Pacific Ocean and the San Francisco Bay. California's fourth-most populous city is also famously multicultural, a major tourist attraction - some of the iconic landmarks include the Golden Gate Bridge, Cable Cars, Alcatraz Island and Chinatown - and an economic hub, is the home to several Fortune 500 companies. Blessed with immense natural wealth and packing a host of entertainment options, San Francisco is a Californian gem.
