San Francisco is viewed as the heart of Northern California when it comes to financial, commercial, and cultural input. This makes sense since the city got its fame from the 1849 Gold Rush which brought people there in the first place. But, they are now staying due to the restaurants, the bridges, and the homey, home-life of the city.
San Francisco is above the national average when it comes to groceries, 29 percent, housing, 231 percent, and utilities at 9 percent.
San Francisco is a mixture of modern and homely feels where there is something for all ages, families, and even single people.
