Experience San Francisco and see
what "The City by the Bay" has to offer...
Welcome to San Francisco
Now's the time....

Day or night. Noon or midnight. Sunrise or sunset. Morning coffee or happy hour. There's always something to do in San Francisco no matter when.

Draped across 40-some hills the City by the Bay is one of the few places in the world that doesn't let time stand still. And all that famous scenery is matched by equally famous shopping, dining, arts and culture.

San Francisco also offers these not-to-be missed sights and events in 2014. Be dazzled by The Bay Lights and the new east span of the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge. Welcome the new cruise terminal at Pier 27 and the Levi's Stadium, home of Super Bowl 50 in 2016. View the art of Henri Matisse, David Hockey and Georgia O'Keeffe and celebrate the first anniversaries of SFJAZZ Center and the Exploratorium in their new homes.

Now's the time to make every hour count in San Francisco.

San Francisco Surprises:

  • When visiting Chinatown remember to look up. Temples are historically built on the upper levels of buildings – to be closer to the gods. The Tin How Temple, 125 Waverly Place, is the oldest Chinese temple in the U.S.
  • The United Nations was founded in San Francisco on June 26, 1945; the historic treaty was signed on the stage of Herbst Theatre near what’s now UN Plaza.
  • San Francisco Bay is the largest natural harbor and estuary on the West Coast.
  • Golden Gate Park was once filled with elk, bears and goats. Now it's home to where the buffalo roam.
  • If the U.S. Navy had prevailed the Golden Gate Bridge would have been painted black with yellow stripes to ensure greater visibility for passing ships. Fortunately, the color scheme as well as one that called for carbon black and steel grey was rejected, with orange vermilion, better known as International Orange, winning out to cover the towers and approximately 600,000 rivets across the Bridge.
  • There’s a famous piece of apparel that got its start in San Francisco. The “birth of the blues” refers to Levi’s jeans. In 1873 Levi Strauss & Co. created and patented the world’s first blue jeans.  Some vintage treasures are on view at company headquarters, 1155 Battery St.
  • San Francisco has 40-plus hills; the most famous are Twin Peaks, Nob Hill, Russian Hill and Telegraph Hill.
  • Thanks to its famous curves, Lombard Street has been named the “the crookedest street in the world.”
  • San Francisco is home to 3,500 restaurants, Three chefs who competed in the The Next Iron Chef, The oldest Slow Food chapter in the US and The Michelin guide's first West Coast city.
  • San Francisco claims a number of food firsts including the martini (although some contend it started in Martinez a few miles to the east of San Francisco); the fortune cookie; America’s oldest Italian restaurant, Fior d’Italia; Oysters Kirkpatrick; cioppino; Chicken Tetrazzini;  Crab Louis and no visit is complete without sampling an It’s It ice cream sandwich.
  • Hum along now … the city by the bay has an official song – the rousing “San Francisco” and an official ballad, Tony Bennett’s romantic “I Left My Heart in San Francisco.”
