Diverse San Francisco loaded with landmarksA few years ago, if you asked anyone what came to mind when they thought about San Francisco, it might have been the Tony Bennett song "I left my heart in San Francisco" along with cable cars, the Golden Gate Bridge and Rice-a-roni. Today, such current topics as gay rights and the Silicon Valley may top the list.
Whatever your thoughts are, San Francisco retains a special place in the heart of most Californians because it so much epitomizes the state – its spectacular beauty, its breathtaking coastal and bay views, and its historic architecture. To be sure, it's an expensive place to live – perhaps the costliest place to live in California – but an incredibly diverse and entertaining place to visit.
