Newcomers: 5 Things You Should Know About the Bay Area

It is California, but it’s not always Sunny: If you’re thinking it’s the area of eternal summer, you’re thinking about Southern California. The Bay weather is very topsy-turvy, one block you’re cold, and the next you’ll be sweating. It’s all about layering here!

The commute here is not easy: SF and the Bay area have big companies, with thousands of workers, that all have to get to work in the morning. The traffic here is challenging, and it’s all about finding the good commute that will save you time and energy. Test different routes and transportation types to find out what works for you.

Foodies, it’s your time to shine: forget New York and Los Angeles, San Francisco and the bay area is big when it comes to food. From organic, local markets, to gourmet restaurants, quality is not hard to find, and don’t even start with the different cuisines.

We are surrounded by amazing nature: Tahoe, the Redwoods, Yosemite - you name it. There are so many travel and hiking destinations a car drive away, use your weekends wisely!

SF is all about diversity: historically the bay area is the center of diversity and acceptance. This means two things: you can be who you are, and you need to accept other people and embrace the inclusivity.
