About San Francisco

Established along Califonia’s central coastline in 1776, San Francisco grew from a gold rush hotspot to one of the country’s booming economic hubs. Located near Silicon Valley, the epicenter of big tech, San Francisco is a melting pot not only for some of the world’s best minds, but members of many different communities.

The city’s many neighborhoods are an opportunity to experience a wide variety of cultures both ethnic and social, from Chinatown to the Hispanic-influenced Mission District to the welcoming communities in Castro. The city has an elevated food scene with fare from around the world, as well as endless options to sample vintages from nearby Wine Country. While shoreline attractions are some of the most popular, there are activities for visitors of all ages throughout the city.

With a long list of unique buildings and open spaces, both historic and modern, finding a reception venue in San Francisco is as simple as deciding what kind of look you want your event to have.
