Where to Stay in San Francisco
No city in the world is quite like San Francisco. Once a Spanish mission, San Francisco was defined by “The Gold Rush” — which created a population boom from 1,000 to 25,000 by December 1849 — and by the 1906 Earthquake and Fire, which left 200,000 homeless. It rose from the ashes to host the 1915 Panama-Pacific Exhibition with the gorgeous Palace of Fine Arts as a symbol of its rebirth. The City grew over the decades as a financial, fashion, food, shipping, and tech center. It’s now home to nearly 875,000 people, and attracts over 25 million visitors annually while cooling fog keeps temperatures mild. We have gathered an assortment of posts to help make your time here as good as it can be.
