A city in Northern California that's similar in some ways to Portland and Seattle. Hated and feared by certain people across America (particularly the likes of Bill O'Reilly and other right wing political commentators) perhaps for it's liberal-minded and tolerant ways, it is a truly unique city and one which I sorely miss.
- Very friendly, open-minded people. Probably the nicest people you'll ever meet, most of whom are left wing democrats.
- Diverse in terms of race, cultures, subcultures, ect. (With tolerance comes diversity).
- The bay area is a fun place to visit if you enjoy sailing. Lots of bridges, islands, and cute little towns to stop by while you're out and about on your boat.
- Great weather and great scenery. Lots of beautiful old buildings and houses.
- Has a hippie and beatnik background, and is still enriched today by several interesting and unique, or sometimes just down right absurd subcultures! :)
- Abundant homeless population.
- As with any modern day city, some areas can be a bit scummy.
- Very expensive.
- Some people like to use the word 'hella'.
- Michael Savage.
I left my heart in San Francisco.

A really nice place in CA. Fun places to see, lovely place to stay, nice people, diverse culture.
People who hate San Francisco are just afraid of culture and friendly people.
The only city in America where weed is legal, but plastic bags aren't.
San Francisco is an awesome place to live.
This is not only the place I live, it is an outstanding city with a very pleasent area.
It has the golden gate bridge and bay bridge, its own bay, the San Francisco bay, it is along the Pacific Ocean, and it has a very unusual climate. It seems more like fall the whole year except for a bit of winter and a bit of summer.
San Francisco is known for its diverse community, and yes it does have a lot of gay/lesbians, but it is far from overpopulated with them. It is an out of the ordinary instance for me, as a San Franciscan, to go walking somewhere for an hour and see someone who looks to be gay or lesbian (doesn't happen often...)
There are lots of Azn gangs, and I know lots of people who are involved with them, but they are getting dealt with appropriately.
The Public School system is totally awesome! I'm in it right now, and enjoying every second of it, even the "Swimming pool on the roof!"
San Francisco is a city with a great environment, a very liberal site on the world, a very interesting population, and a very pleasent place to live (there are lots of cheap places to live in SF also... it isn't all expencive...)
San Francisco; The city of diversity.
San Francisco means so many things to so many people--a superlative in terms of the kinds of activity and diversity engendered in the most beautiful city in the world.
Affectionately known by locals as "The City" by the bay, it's unique topography and eclectic skyline lends a vertical appearance to a dynamic landscape, containing the world's most treasured examples of architecture--Transamerica Pyramid, Bank of America Center, Ferry Building, Golden Gate Bridge, et al.
Akin to Paris and London, San Francisco offers something special for those living--or visiting--in the area, leaving an indelible impression to come back for more: Financial District, Fisherman's Wharf, Alcatraz Island, Union Square, Chinatown, Japantown, etc.
I left my heart in San Francisco. And I can't wait to go back.
Wonderful city, but the middle class and families — the two elements that make a city thrive — are becoming an endangered species. San Francisco could soon become half a playground for hipsters and the nomadic rich, and half a squalid district for the permanent lower class.
If San Francisco doesn't watch it, it's going to turn into a cross between Carmel and Calcutta.
A city which is diverse. Every kind of neighborhood and every kind of person. You can go from the best neighborhood Pacific Heights to the Fillmore in 4 minutes. Although many believe this city is all rich, there are some terrible neighborhoods in the south, central, and east areas of the city.
San Francisco got something for Everyone
