-Peninsula= San Fran, San Mateo, Daly City, Burlingame, hills borough, etc.. Uber expensive, classy, foggy, urban.
-Marin county= north bay, foggy, coldish, wealthiest county, classy, belvedere is hella rich.

-East bay= Oakland - poor rich gap, gangsters, raiders, rich people in the hills. Berkeley- hella smart and liberal. Richmond-oil refinery. Orinda- rich country club. Walnut creek/concord- suburb. Danville, Alamo, Diablo, blackhawk= uber rich, wealthiest part of California. Mount diablo largest view shed in Western Hemisphere.

-South Bay/Silicon Valley - pretty much every single tech company. Hotter weather,traffic, rich people, tech capital of the world.

In essence, the Bay Area is the center of the tech world, refineries, money, shipping.. It is extremely awesome- 8 million + people all rich and classy. Classiest and richest part of the United States.

The Tampa-St. Petersburg-Clearwater, Florida, Metropolitan Statistical Area, also known as the Tampa Bay area or simply Tampa Bay after the body of water it surrounds, is a metropolitan area on the Gulf coast of west-central Florida. It includes the cities of Tampa, St. Petersburg and Clearwater, as well as numerous other small municipalities in Pasco, Hernando, Pinellas, and Hillsborough counties. The population for the Tampa Bay area currently stands at 2,589,637; as of a July 4, 2005 estimate. It is experiencing urban sprawl and the area grows at an average of 20,000 to 40,000 residents every year, which is about 200,000 to 400,000 every 10 years. Most of the sprawl has occurred in the more rural areas because of more affordable land; such areas are Lutz, Land O' Lakes, Pasco County and Hernando County. The West Coast of Florida, on the Gulf of Mexico is considered a tourist destination as the weather is semi-tropical and the region contains significant natural beauty, including brilliant sunsets, exotic foliage, and attractive scenery. The Tampa Bay area contains three major public beaches. Coastal access and ports provide the opportunity to observe dolphins, manatees and other sea life, experience deep sea fishing, scuba diving, and join cruises to Gulf of Mexico destinations including Cozumel, Key West and the Cayman Islands.
