itz all about da bay area
The Bay Area is very distinct and unmistakable to those who are familiar with it's culture and lifestyle. Outsiders often don't get it. You can't fake being from the bay. When you say "frisco", you give yourself away. Bay Area people don't say that.
The term Bay Area as mentioned, almost invariably refers to the San Francisco Bay Area. Other regions that carry this name only do so within their local areas. Some other terms heard in the bay area such as "the south bay" are used in a few other places, most notably in San Diego where there is also a south bay.
If you look up Bay Area in Wikipedia, this is what you'll see:
The San Francisco Bay Area, commonly known as the Bay Area, or the Bay, is a geographically and ethnically diverse metropolitan region that surrounds the San Francisco and San Pablo bays in Northern California.
If you look up Bay Area (disambiguation), this is what you'll see:
Bay Area is a common term to refer to a metropolitan area situated around a bay. Three places in the United States that are referred to simply as "the Bay Area" by their residents are:
* San Francisco Bay Area
* Tampa Bay Area
* Galveston Bay Area
Notice, no mention of Chesapeake, Hudson, or Memphis. Sorry, but when you say Bay Area ANYWHERE around the world, they think SF Bay Area, not Chesapeake or Hudson so don't try to make it sound like we are creating the definition. Words and phrases, much like some in this dictionary, are created based on an agreement in terms of the usage of the lexicon. The term Bay Area has long been associated with the S.F. Bay Area which is why it has stuck.
As a Bay Arian, I hella exercise my right to vote.
