San Francisco

San Francisco is both a city with a 7 million population and a county in the state of California. Its name is just the Spanish translation of Saint Francis. Although the west coast is generally said to be more liberal than the east coast, San Francisco can be considered one of the most liberal cities in the United States. Its unique influence from different cultures gives the city its own characteristics. As one of the main areas of alternative life styles (Castro Road is the major gay district) and all kinds of art, San Francisco has survived many changes and challenges - like the 1906 earth quake which destroyed nearly 80% of all buildings being erased, over 6000 deaths, and over 400,000 homeless citizens. The San Francisco Bay Area consists of Oakland, San Francisco, and San Jose - all of them are definitely worth a visit and exploration.
