I heard about San Francisco previously and I want to recommend to you song about this city. The song written by John Phillips and sung by Scott McKenzie, was produced and released in 1967. The San Francisco is a happening city that never sleep. People there are very gentle and enjoy every moment of life.

San Francisco the only consolidated city-county in California area is about 46.9 square miles (121 km2) population: 8.4 million was founded on June 29, 1776. The California Gold Rush of 1849 brought rapid growth, making it the largest city on the West Coast at the time. Due to the growth of its population, San Francisco became a consolidated city-county in 1856.After three-quarters of the city was destroyed by the 1906 earthquake and fire, San Francisco was quickly rebuilt, hosting the Panama-Pacific International Exposition nine years later.
Today the city is renowned for its cool summers, fog, steep rolling hills, eclectic mix of architecture, and landmarks including the Golden Gate Bridge, cable cars, the former prison on Alcatraz Island, and its Chinatown district.
San Francisco also has a reputation as an intellectual, liberal and slightly crazy city – a city where new and different ideas can be explored.
San Francisco has more then 4,500 restaurants, serving every cuisine including ‘Californian cuisine’
