OK.. here's a dumb question from a non-American: what do you mean by 'Bay Area'? This world of our has a lot of coastline with a lot of concave portions (bays) and lots of those have cities on them. Do you mean San Francisco Bay? (I'm guessing but there seem to be lot of Californian members).

Enlighten us...

Hi halz,

It's the San Francisco bay area.

Don't feel bad. I've lived in California 42 of my 49 years and it wasn't until I lived in S.F. that I realized where the "Bay Area" was! I thought at first it may be the Santa Monica Bay area.

It's funny how we become accustomed to regional terms without realizing that people outside our area don't know what we're refering too.

Hope that helps,

Rob

I don't feel bad. As they say, the only dumb question is the one you don't ask... I've been playing quite a guessing game with the locations people give on this site.

'socal' The county of southern california?

This would be equivalent to me saying I'm from W.A. or Vic and expecting everyone to know that these are states in Australia. I'm learning...
