About San Francisco

San Francisco is America's second most densely populated city, known for its vibrant alternative culture. The city is located in Northern California and was founded by Spanish colonists. This distinctly Latin influence is still noticeable to this day. The city also has large Asian communities. San Francisco is known for its liberal attitudes and has often been the focal point for various countercultures, including the Beats, hippies and the LGBT rights movement. Different areas of the city offer a totally different experience, meaning there's a wide variety of San Francisco attractions. Visitors will struggle to fit everything in and are sure to book more flights to San Francisco so that they can see the rest some other time.
