Hard to rate with only a couple of pictures whose links are still working, but most everybody is familiar with San Francisco's skyline. I like it, and if you see it with the Golden Gate Bridge in the foreground, it's a winner by a mile.

8.

You listed the population as 811 000. I'm comfortable with that. SF seems like a big city in the CBD, but once out of it, not very big, without urban sprwal, with little high density housing like LA.....plus you've got some geographical boundaries such as the bay, ocean, hills and National Parks............so where the heck do you get another 6.7 million in the metro/burbs. Do you count Oakland? Don't know what it's pop. is but its only a fraction of SF. Do you count Marin County and stretching it to the towns of San Jose to the South or Sonoma to the North which are both about an hour away? Even if you do I still can't see where all those 7.5 million buggers live.

7.5 million is like our Melbourne and Sydney blended together.....huge!

Just help an ignorant ol' Aussie out here and explain to me...how?

apart from that old boy you've got one of the most beautiful cities in the world.

Cheers!

You pretty much answered your own question there,mate!
Include Stockton into the beforementioned, and you have the
Greater San Francisco metro area, which does indeed number
7.5 mil. And guess what - it's still growing!
