Welcome to The San Francisco MetroGuide service, your source for information on the Greater San Francisco area. The San Francisco MetroGuide is a member of the MetroGuide Network, a collection of information sites, all using a similar interface, for major metropolitan areas worldwide.
Greater San Francisco -- the community on the bay where so many hearts have been left behind -- also mesmerizes as the "rockingest city in the United States" with a montage of events stretching from Haight Ashbury Music Center to Fisherman's Wharf and Chinatown.
The city's "Only in San Francisco" branding campaign undercores icon-rich one-of-a-kind aspects from hilly geography, landmarks such as Golden Gate Bridge, famed cable cars traditions, cultures and tolerance where people feel free to be themselves and diverse inhabitants from all over. Only in San Francisco can 30 museums be found scattered over 49 square miles, some one-of-a-kind. Among them are the Cartoon Art Museum, the nation's only facility dedicated to preservation and exhibition of cartoon art in all its forms; the Golden Gate Railroad Museum, started when a pharmacist idly asked the San Mateo Fairgrounds director about a steam engine languishing in the parking lot, and Mission Dolores, the city's oldest intact building, also the only intact mission chapel of 21 established by Father Junipero Serra. Apart from historic, religious and architectural significance, Mission Dolores has had a non-stop central role in civic / cultural life. San Francisco also has become a sleeper hit among cinephiles. Each month brings at least one cinematic celebration, from the renowned San Francisco International Film Festival to small programs exploring distinct genres.
