Welcome to Brisbane
Brisbane, also known as "The City of Lights", was opened up in 1908 under its original name, Visitacion City. Due to its similarity to a nearby district in San Francisco, its name was changed in the 1920's. It is known for its abundance of greenery and parks and close proximity to the San Francisco Bay. However, Brisbane also has growing commercial areas, with companies such as Dolby, Actelion, and The RealReal being tenants here.
