 San Francisco, United States
San Francisco's 223-year history of European settlement is predated by untold millennia of Native American habitation - and 230 years of bumbling European explorers unable to find the Bay.

Public confidence in San Francisco's economy is greater than ever, however, and for the 725,000 residents and the millions of visitors who love it, it would be hard to dim the luster of the abundant charms of the City by the Bay.
