One of the most popular travel destinations in the country, San Francisco attracted more than 16 million visitors in 2011, injecting $8.5 billion into the economy. Figures like these make it easy to understand why tourism is the backbone of the city’s economy, and why private jet San Francisco is so common. The city attracts the fifth-highest number of foreign tourists of any city in the U.S. and claims Pier 39 near Fisherman’s Wharf as the third-most popular tourist attraction in the nation. With a large hotel infrastructure and world-class convention facilities, San Francisco is also among the top-ten North American destinations for conventions and conferences.
When it comes to business, San Francisco truly shines. The city became the principal banking and finance center of the West Coast in the early twentieth century. Many large financial institutions, multinational banks and venture capital firms are based in or have regional headquarters in the city, which ranks eighteenth in the world’s list of cities by GDP. The city is home to 30 international financial institutions, seven Fortune 500 companies, and has a large support infrastructure of professional services including law, accounting, public relations, architecture and design.
San Francisco’s economy has also increasingly become tied to San Jose and Silicon Valley since the 1990s, its Bay Area neighbors to the south. The city was an epicenter of the Dot-Com bubble of the 1990s, and the subsequent Web 2.0 boom of the late 2000s. Many popular and prominent Internet companies such as Craigslist, Twitter, Salesforce.com, Zynga and Wikimedia among many others have established their headquarters in San Francisco. The city has also been positioning itself as a biotechnology and biomedical hub and research center since the 1990s.
San Francisco may be brimming with business opportunities, but there is much for the jet charter consumer traveling for pleasure as well. San Francisco War Memorial and Performing Arts Center hosts some of the most enduring performing-arts companies in the U.S. – the San Francisco Opera, the second-largest opera company in North America, and the world renowned San Francisco Ballet. The famous San Francisco Symphony calls Davies Symphony Hall home. The American Conservatory Theater (A.C.T.) and many vintage venues in the Theater District including the Curran, Golden Gate, and Orpheum Theatres have had major cultural impact within the city. The Fillmore is the second incarnation of the iconic music venue where the Grateful Dead, Janis Joplin, Led Zeppelin and Jefferson Airplane first performed on stage.
When you fly to San Francisco, be ready for many other cultural highlights, including the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (SFMOMA), which houses 20th century and contemporary works of art, Asian Art Museum, Palace of the Legion of Honor, Palace of Fine Arts, de Young Museum, and the California Academy of Sciences, which also features Morrison Planetarium and Steinhart Aquarium. Seeing the living roof at the California Academy of Sciences, a fine example of sustainable architecture which opened in 2008, is a must for many tourists.
