It's the Golden Gate Bridge and Alcatraz. Chinatown and cable cars, "painted ladies" and Fisherman's Wharf. It's San Francisco, and everything about this city is amazing. From its hilly streets to the sparkling water of the San Francisco Bay, everything about the city is iconic. But this isn't just a tourist destination -- San Francisco is a major city with a powerhouse economy, featuring businesses like Dropbox, Reddit, Levi Strauss & Co, Wikimedia Foundation, Yelp, Twitter, and Weather Underground.

As you search for San Francisco rentals, you'll discover some of this city's most iconic neighborhoods, from Haight-Ashbury to Pacific Heights, and from the Mission District to the Castro. Each has its own distinctive personality, and no two are alike. If you enjoy elegant Victorians, you'll love Haight-Ashbury. If you like quirky neighborhoods, you'll appreciate Russian Hill. If you prefer trendy and hip, head to the Mission District.

One thing you'll never be in San Francisco is bored. There's art and culture in the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, sports in the form of the NFL's San Francisco 49ers who play in nearby Santa Clara at Levi's Stadium, amazing parks like the Golden Gate National Recreation Area, beaches along the Pacific Ocean like Ocean Beach and Baker Beach, and fascinating landmarks like Alcatraz.

You'll find several universities and colleges in the city, including the University of San Francisco, San Francisco State University, and the University of California, San Francisco. And while you'll find great mass transit options in this pedestrian-friendly city, the most popular mode of transportation is cycling. San Francisco is the second-most walkable city in the country and it earned "Gold" status from the League of American Bicyclists.
