907,616 people visited The San Francisco Bay Area
The San Francisco Bay Area is home to a total population of 7.4 million people, and about 6.5 million of those people live outside San Francisco, in Marin County, the East Bay, Napa and Sonoma Valleys and the South Bay (Even San Jose has a higher population than its more famous northerly neighbor). There is an abundance of agricultural and food tourism. Dine at famed chef Alice Waters' Chez Panisse in hippie Berkeley or call months in advance to reserve a table at Thomas Keller’s French Laundry in Yountville. Napa and Sonoma are also home to some of the United States’ best wine regions, with many wineries open for tastings. Explore the birthplace of technology in Silicon Valley, the hills and towns of the East Bay, or the houseboats and hot tubs of Marin County. An eclectic mix of nature, culture, and technology, the region is a leader in innovation and sustainability.
