San Francisco
closeSan Francisco came to life with the gold rush, caused by the discovery of gold in the Sierra Nevada foothills. In the 1930s with the construction of the Bay Bridge and Golden Gate Bridge, the city was connected to the bay area, now known for its numerous high-tech companies.
San Francisco has a unique character with very distinct neighbourhoods, like SoMa, Chinatown, Japantown, Castro and Mission district.
