When I moved to San Francisco four years ago, I knew little about Bay Area except San Francisco and Silicon Valley. For most people from other states or countries, you may not be very familiar with this region which surrounds San Francisco in Northern California. It’s an absolutely gorgeous area, and there are numerouse reasons why you should never miss the opportunity to experience the life here.

Nice Weather

California is well known for its pleasant sunny days. Even it’s a little chilly in Northern California, you won’t worry too much about the weather. The temperature is usually around 50s and it barely rains from March to November. It’s common to see people wearing T-shirts and those wearing coats at the same time-it all depends on how you would like to enjoy the famous California sunshine.

Beautiful Scenery

You must hear about Golden Gate Bridge and Alcatraz before, but Bay Area has more iconic views other than those. In the city, there are many places you can go: Twin Peaks, Fisherman’s Wharf, Golden Gate Park, Coit Tower and Alamo Square. You can also drive on Highway 280 or Highway 1 to see the beautiful landmarks and scenery spots.


This is for the all the sports fans out there. The Bay Area has several amazing teams: San Francisco Giants (2013 World Series Championship), San Francisco 49ers, Golden State Warriors, San Jose Sharks. Catch those games in the well-located stadiums with your friends. Doesn’t it sound good?

Tech Hub

Facebook, Google, Twitter, Yahoo-most dot companies you can name are headquartered in Bay Area. With a culture of Venture Capital investments, more and more tech companies are being founded. In Bay Area, you are exposed to the new technology coming up every day. I am sure it will serve as a major inspiration for you.


People from all over the world move to Bay Area. This creates so much diversity. I’m sure you are all aware that San Francisco is booming with people from all over the world. In other words, everyone is welcome! It’s so great to be in a place that welcomes everyone with open arms, and so eye-opening as well.

In a word, this amazing place is full of opportunities for you to explore and I believe you will like it as much as anyone else does.
