San Francisco’s Bay Area is picture perfect. Here you'll find impressive hills, plenty of open space, and the calm waters of the San Francisco Bay framing one of the largest urban areas in the United States. But all this beauty doesn't come cheap. San Francisco is one of the most expensive urban areas in North America to visit.
