Small City, Big Attitude -- One of the best things about visiting San Francisco is that, although the city is “big” in terms of attractions and amenities, it is geographically small – slightly over 47 square miles. Consequently, it is very easy to see and do a great many things in a short period of time. Scenic, diverse, delicious — a true feast for the senses is what defines the “Only in San Francisco” experience. Known for record-breaking attendances, offering 32,976 hotel rooms and a strategically located convention center, San Francisco adds up to the perfect meeting solution. For 17 consecutive years, San Francisco has been named No. 1 U.S. City by the readers of Conde Nast Traveler. San Francisco has its “high profile and low profile attractions,” visitor favorites and local gems. And for under $10 one can create a moveable feast at the Ferry Building, take a sentimental journey on the F-line streetcar or take advantage of lowered admissions at world-class museums. San Francisco’s natural assets include 40 hills, a spring like climate and a 500-square- mile bay. The most visited attractions are Fisherman’s Wharf, the cable cars, Chinatown, the Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz, Golden Gate Park, the city’s multitude of shopping, its lively arts scene and a world famous culinary community.
