San Francisco is the backbone of Northern California as far as culture, financial, and commercial activities are concerned. It is the 16th most populated city in the U.S.A and the fourth most populated city in California, with close to a million residents. According to the metropolitan statistical area data, San Francisco ranks 12th in the U.S and is the 4th largest by economic output. In 2018, the county-city had a GDP of $549 billion.
The history of San Francisco
The city of San Francisco was founded on 29 June 1776. This was when Spanish colonists established Mission San Francisco de Asis and Presidio of San Francisco at the Golden Gate. In 1849, the California Gold Rush attracted rapid growth in San Francisco, making it the largest city on the West Coast. Between 1870 and 1900, San Francisco's status peaked as the largest city on the West Coast. This was after 25 percent of California's population settled in the city.
In 1906, an earthquake and fire destroyed around three-quarters of San Francisco. However, the residents quickly rebuilt the city and hosted the Panama-Pacific International Exposition almost a decade later.
During the Second World War, the city became the principal port of departure for servicemen who shipped out to the Pacific Theater. In 1945, San Francisco became the birthplace of the United Nations. After World War II, several factors led to cementing San Francisco as the center of liberal activism in the country. Factors such as:
• The confluence of bringing home servicemen
• Liberalizing attitudes
• Significant immigration
• The rise of the "hippie" counterculture
Popular Tourist destinations in San Francisco
Many tourists visit San Francisco every year, and the city is known for its cool summers, steep rolling hills, the eclectic mix of architecture and fog. The frequent portrayal of the city in popular music and film has helped attract millions of tourists worldwide. The city witnessed the fifth-highest number of tourists in the country in 2016. About 25 million foreign tourists arrived in the city during that year. The city accumulated $9,96 billion from tourism alone.
San Francisco hosts popular landmarks such as:
It is the home of Pier 39 and a sea lion colony. The colony of sea lions began residing next to the pier 39 way before the 1989 Loma Prieta earthquake. They lie on wooden docks that anglers used to dock their ships.
The area hosts a wide range of seafood restaurants, including the most popular floating Forbes Island restaurant that serves fresh seafood. The area also hosts several San Francisco events like the Fourth of July fireworks display.
The Golden Gate Bridge
This popular tourist attraction is a 1-mile wide suspension bridge that connects the Pacific Ocean and San Francisco Bay. The structure links the northern tip of the San Francisco Peninsula to Marin County. It is the most recognized symbol of the city and California across the world. The American Society of Civil Engineers declared the structure designed by engineer Joseph Strauss as one of the Wonders of the Modern world. Tourists can bike ride, walk, or driver across the bridge to photograph or admire stunning views.
Former Alcatraz Federal Penitentiary
Found on Alcatraz Island, the maximum-security federal prison was built between 1910 and 1912 as a military prison for United States Army. The three-story cell house is believed to be America's strongest prison that is escape-proof. This is due to the cold water surrounding the island, the strong currents of San Francisco Bay, and the prison’s high-security measures.
The city is home to the largest Chinese enclave out of Asia, located on Grant Avenue and Stockton Street. The Chinatown in San Francisco is the largest in North America. Since the establishment of the Chinatown in 1848, it has been influential and highly important in the culture and history of Chinese immigrants in North America. The residents of Chinatown continue to maintain their culture.
When it comes to food, Chinatown restaurants in San Francisco have a wide range of ethnic foods. People consider the city as the origin of Americanized Chinese cuisines like Chop Suey, Cantonese dishes, and Chicken drummettes. Chinatown is rich with more than enough to meet the needs of both foreign and local tourists.
San Francisco’s financial sector
The town is the headquarters of five banking institutions and companies such as:
• Gap Inc
• Levi Strauss and Co
• Pacific gas and electric company
• Wikimedia Foundation and Craigslist
The institutions play a significant role in pushing the economic status of San Francisco. Commercial buildings are vulnerable to water damage resulting from a wide range of issues, including HVAC problems. HVAC condensate water can harm your commercial building.
