11 Things Every San Franciscan Wants The Rest Of The Country To Know
As we all know, Fog City is a cultural, commercial, and financial center that recently has become even more prominent. Tech innovation, proximity to Silicon Valley, lifestyle, nature, and countless other things have made this city stand out. But what do San Franciscans want you to know? We can think of at least 11 things that are uniquely San Francisco that the rest of the country needs to know.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here:
1. We remind you to recycle constantly.
In general, San Franciscans care more about the environment than your average American city resident. Perhaps Portland may beat us, but we remind you constantly to recycle, compost, and reuse. We know our recycling vs. our trash vs. our compost.
2. We think differently.
This is a San Francisco tradition that has been present for decades. These days, it seems the 415 is one of the few places where you have the, "freedom to think differently."
3. We are socially aware and politically engaged.
San Franciscans have had this reputation for years. Not many cities see the same sense of civic engagement as that in San Francisco.
4. We love our sports teams more than you realize, especially the Giants.
Many people forget we have many world class teams based in the city like the Giants, the Niners, and right outside town --- The Warriors!
5. We love food with a passion.
If you know a San Franciscan, then there is a good chance he or she will be a foodie. Food is important especially anything touted as healthy, organic, or just downright delicious. Many San Franciscans are all about the newest and greatest in food and wine.
6. We encourage you to embrace your weird side.
You won't meet zanier or more irreverent people like you do in San Francisco. If you want to meet people full of creativity or who march to their own drummer then look no further! We even have a festival called the 'How Weird Street Faire.'
7. We love to celebrate and throw street parades.
We really know how to party in San Francisco—just check out all of the festivals and parades held in our relatively small city and you'll be amazed.
8. We are fit and active.
If you want to meet people who will energize you, then this is the place to be. San Franciscans don't just like to workout they enjoy a challenge. San Franciscans are hardcore when it comes to running, biking, Crossfit, yoga, and more.
9. We love to show off our beautiful city.
Without a doubt, San Francisco is one of the most beautiful cities in the USA and let alone the whole world. The beauty is awe inspiring and breathtaking, so we let everyone know all the time.
10. We are an innovative town.
Innovation is what this town is now known for because of technology, and more and more San Franciscans are proud of this innovative reputation. Like the techies or not, San Francisco, and of course Silicon Valley, has always been a hub for world-changing innovation.
11. We are open minded.
People in San Francisco are renowned for being tolerant and open-minded, and this is something we want everyone to know. The social history and Summer of Love ideals are part of the influence that still pervades the community of San Francisco.
