Where to go and where to stay in San Francisco County.

The county seat of San Francisco is none other than San Francisco.

38 - San Francisco County

The Spanish settled the tip of the San Francisco peninsula in 1776; establishing a fort at the Golden Gate and a mission named for Saint Francis of Assisi (Mission San Francisco de Asis, now known as Mission Dolores); although there is archaeological evidence of inhabitation in the San Francisco area, as far back as 3,000 BC.

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.
