Where to go and where to stay
in San Francisco County.
The county seat of San Francisco is none other than San Francisco.
The Spanish settled the tip of the San Francisco peninsula in

With the California Gold Rush, in 1848, the city grew rapidly - until
it was devasted by The Great Earthquake;
on April 18th, 1906.
The hilly city of San Francisco was quickly rebuilt, offering today's
visitors an eclectic mix of Victorian and modern architecture.
Its peninsular location, surrounded by the Pacific Ocean and San
Francisco Bay, contributes to the city's rolling sea-fog; which can make it relatively
chilly at times, even in the summer months.
