San Francisco is located on the coast of northern California, at the head of San Francisco Bay.

San Francisco is physically quite compact, but has an enormous diversity of attractions, making it one of the most popular travel destinations in the country.

In addition to an array of cultural sights and events, the city is known for its cable cars and for the iconic Golden Gate Bridge, which can be cross on foot or bike.

The greater Bay Area includes Oakland and Berkeley (east), the Peninsula and Silicon Valley (south), and Marin County (north).

Overall Atmosphere: Combination
Combination Atmosphere destinations combine elements of both cultural and natural destinations, where this combination is itself essential to the travel experience. Common examples are Archaeological Sites (where culture is usually experienced outdoors), Scenic Local Markets (where indigenous cultures interact outdoors), Hotsprings and Vineyard Areas (where nature provides the raw materials but humans create the surroundings), and Unique Cultural Landscapes (where humans and nature interact in innovative ways, as in the elaborate rice terracing systems of Asia).

Combination Interests typically fall somewhere in the middle of the three types of primary interests in terms of
(a) how climate-dependent they are
(b) how accessible and physically demanding they are.
Featuring both cultural and natural attractions.
