The San Francisco Bay Area actually consists of nine counties and who knows how many small and large towns north, south and east of the “City” itself. Oakland, Berkeley, San Jose [10th largest city in the U.S.], Palo Alto, Mountain View, Sunnyvale, Santa Clara, Redwood City, Newark, Hayward and Fremont are only SOME of the places from which you can get reasonable access to San Francisco via public transportation and find a host when the San Francisco CSers are overbooked. Those of us in the expanded Bay Area often are looking for hosting opportunities and may be able to provide extra TLC, time, transportation help that those who host constantly simply cannot do. You’ll find interesting museums, beautiful parks, big trees, with all the amenities and excitement that big cities and world-class universities can offer, as well as get a different view of California life.
This is NOT the place to post a request if you must stay or are only willing to stay in the city of San Francisco itself without considering other options.
