Less than an hour from The Orchard is the City of San Francisco which provides an incomparable urban escape whenever you need it.
The city was first settled by the Spanish in the 18th century, and began to flourish during the California Gold Rush in 1848. It quickly became a haven for entrepreneurs as the banking, railroad and manufacturing industries boomed, attracting immigrant laborers from around the world. A major earthquake in 1906 destroyed much of the city, but it was quickly rebuilt to be better than ever.
Today San Francisco is one of the most unique and culturally rich cities in the world. It is renowned for its steep hills, Victorian and modern architecture, eclectic neighborhoods and diverse population. Its famous landmarks – from the Golden Gate Bridge to Alcatraz Island to Fisherman’s Warf to Chinatown – are known around the world, as are its museums, galleries and theaters. When you visit, be sure to check out PlumpJack Wines, PlumpJack Café, Balboa Café and the other shops, clubs and eateries in the PlumpJack family.
