The center of a cultural revolution in the 1960s, San Francisco has been thought of as liberal and progressive ever since.
While the flower-powered hippies who flocked to the Haight-Ashbury area in the 1960s may be nearing retirement age, the spirit they instilled in San Francisco lives on and has given the city the honor of being the capital of liberal-activism in the United States.
In more recent years cultural changes have been overtaken by the technological - the information technology and dot-com booms in Silicon Valley.
Life in San Francisco is as diverse as its landscape, dominated by hills and surrounded on three sides by water and as bumpy as the earthquakes that punctuate the city's history.
