You will come to know the city's eclectic and tenacious spirit, and you will understand its overpowering charm.

Yet practicality rules! Let this guide show you the neighbourhoods, the restaurants, and opportunities for cultural enrichment. Let it help you through the challenges any newcomer encounters, from finding an affordable home to selecting a school for your kids. And most importantly, let it advise you how to fit in with that diverse assortment of locals who together make San Francisco truly unique.
