Welcome to San Francisco

Paul Kantner of the Jefferson Airplane once called San Francisco "49 square miles surrounded by reality." Locals didn't flinch: after all, the city's quirkiness, as well as its beauty, is something they embrace. It's home to an eclectic mix of cultures and ethnicities, art and architecture, politics and sports, dot-com and dotty. The weather? In a novel, it would be a character. But their combined characteristics continue to charm visitors from all over the world.
