Situated in Northern California, the sunny city of San Francisco is known for its steep streets, Dungeness crabs, quirky neighborhoods, and rich history. Founded by Spanish colonists in 1766, the city experienced major growth during the California Gold Rush of 1849. The Rush brought with it a mass influx of people looking to strike it lucky, making San Francisco the largest city on the West Coast at the time. It was during this period that the denim jean was born, as Levi Strauss sought to design durable yet comfortable clothing for the Gold Rush miners. However, San Francisco’s rapid growth came to a startling halt following the infamous earthquake and fire of 1906 which saw three quarters of the city destroyed. The fire burned for four days and caused more than $8 billion in damage by today’s standards.
Over time, San Francisco has become a mega popular tourist destination with over 25 million visitors to the city each year. The Golden City boasts famous landmarks and attractions like the Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz Federal Penitentiary, and its over 150-year-old cable car system. San Francisco is also home to unique neighborhoods like Haight-Ashbury, Marina District, North Beach, and Fisherman’s Wharf. Residents of Fisherman’s Wharf neighborhood can enjoy a cup of clam chowder at one of the many waterfront restaurants while taking in the sunbathing seals of Pier 39. For those located in the trendy neighborhood of Haight-Ashbury, widely considered the birthplace of the 1960s counterculture movement, vintage shops, and eclectic bars line the vibrant streets. You will also find a burgeoning music scene in Haight-Ashbury with roots tracing back to the 1960s where famous bands like the Grateful Dead lived and performed.
