Tony Bennett isn’t the only one who left his heart in San Francisco. In 2019 alone, an estimated 26.2 million people visited the City by the Bay — and you can bet many of their hearts also yearned to stay. The city has it all — it’s not just physically beautiful with gorgeous views of the Pacific Ocean and San Francisco Bay, it’s also culturally rich, politically engaged, historically layered and culinarily cutting edge. It has been a magnet for dreamers and romantics, pirates and gold seekers, and for travelers who still return again and again to savor San Francisco’s rolling hills and vistas, history and art, restaurants and museums, and its catchy laid-back spirit and soul.
