San Francisco 

San Francisco is a cosmopolitan city of nearly 800,000 people. Located on the hilly tip of a peninsula in Northern California, it is bound by the Pacific Ocean to the west, San Francisco Bay to the north and east, and Silicon Valley to the south. With its many foreign consulates and trade offices, San Francisco is a gateway to world trade. The City is the economic hub of the Bay Area. Since the 1990’s San Francisco’s economy has moved towards the growing field of high tech, biotechnology, and medical research. In 2004, the City approved a payroll tax exemption for biotechnology companies to foster growth in the Mission Bay neighborhood, site of a second campus and hospital of the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF). The City’s other major industries are the service economy, tourism and hospitality, financial services, and city government. San Francisco has a long history of tolerance and diversity. 

San Francisco also has a broad range of cultural facilities, including resident professional companies of opera, ballet, theater, music, and sports. Its many museums include the Asian Art Museum, the De Young Museum, and the Museum of African American Diaspora, as well as a variety of cultural centers. A Mission Bay biotechnology park has been developed as part of the UCSF campus and serves as the state’s Institute for Regenerative Medicine. Further, San Francisco’s mild climate encourages outdoor activities throughout the year.
