About San Francisco
San Francisco is a Northern California city famous for its rolling fog, colorful Victorian houses and the iconic Golden Gate Bridge. It's an epicenter of commerce, finance and culture, and one of the most densely populated areas in the nation. The city has seen a steady rate of growth over the past few decades, thanks to its variety of jobs, diverse economy, with support from tech companies in and around the area, and a huge variety of local attractions.
The History of San Francisco
Europeans first settled in San Francisco in the late 18th century when Spanish forces established the Presidio Army Base. When prospectors struck gold in the area in 1849, the population exploded. Within a year of the discovery, the city went from about 1,000 people to over 25,000, with treasure-seekers coming from all over the country. Many well-known entrepreneurs, including Levi Strauss and Dominic Ghirardelli, moved to the area to make the most of the Gold Rush and San Francisco prospered. When the gold frenzy began to calm, silver was discovered. This fed the area's economic prosperity, making it possible for its development to continue, while many other regional towns failed.
Today, San Francisco is a hub for technological innovation, with recent booms fueled by the growth of internet and other tech companies. It serves as a popular residential area for people working in nearby Silicon Valley and continues to produce artists and other creatives in a wide range of fields.
The "City by the Bay" is also famous for its activism and as the home of the beat poets, who moved to town in the 1950s and made their home at City Lights Bookstore. The establishment still opens its doors to the public on Columbus Avenue, at the intersection of the popular North Beach and China Town neighborhoods.
Living in San Francisco
San Francisco is considered such a desirable place to live that real estate prices have been rising steadily since the 1980s.

It has an extremely high cost of living, higher than both the California and national averages.
One of the biggest factors that attract people to San Francisco is its highly diversified economy, offering a huge range of jobs in a variety of fields.
