About the Bay Area

The San Francisco Bay Area, also known as the "Bay Area", is a geographically diverse metropolitan region that surrounds the San Francisco Bay in Northern California. It encompasses the cities of San Francisco, San José, and Oakland, and their many suburbs. It also includes the smaller urban and rural areas of the North Bay. Home to almost seven million people, it comprises cities, towns, airports, and associated regional, state, and national parks connected by a massive network of roads, highways, railroads, bridges, and commuter rail.  San Francisco remains the focal point and major cultural center in the region.
