San Francisco Bay Area Map
San Francisco Bay Area map
Surrounding San Francisco Bay are cities both large and small. The city of San Francisco lies where the water from the bay meets the Pacific Ocean. At the southern end of the bay, the area around San Jose is a center of tech, with the resulting nickname “Silicon Valley.”
The map of the San Francisco Bay Area is surrounded by a border highlighting significant events in the area's history.
Bear in mind that the map shown here reflects the year 2000. Some things have changed in the years since. For example: the home stadium of the San Francisco 49ers football team is now in Santa Clara, not San Francisco.
The products shown below (except for the folded paper map) use versions of this map that have been modified to reflect this change, as well as to incorporate other updates and improvements.
An enlarged section of the map
This enlarged section of the map shows the clarity provided on the original 24” x 18” paper map. The clarity on the products shown below is affected by both the size of the product and material the image is printed on. Images printed on paper are sharper than those printed on cloth.
The border of this map
A click or tap on the "A Short, Illustrated History of the Bay Area" image will take you to the series of illustrations that form the border of this map.
The quality of the images on the actual map is higher than the quality shown here.
Products based on updated versions of this map
These products are based on updated versions of this map. The posters are based on a 2023 revision, and the trays are based on a 2016 revision. The folded map remains the original 2000 version.
A poster makes a colorful addition to the wall of a home, office, dorm room, or recreational site.
Ordering through Society6.com allows you to select the size that fits with your location. To capture the fine detail on the map, I recommend a size no smaller than 18" x 24".
Wooden Serving Trays
An illustrated map can evoke a memory, inspire a trip, or bring on a smile.
This 16" x 12" tray features the northern part of the San Francisco Bay Area map.
This tray is also available in a smaller, 11" x 8" size. For that one, go HERE
These trays from Trays4Us are handcrafted in Scandinavia of a birchwood veneer sourced from Certified Sustainable Forests, and then sealed with a matte melamine final layer to protect the wood.
Another 16" x 12" tray features the southern part of the San Francisco Bay Area map, the area often referred to as Silicon Valley.
