San Francisco Travel Guide

Why Visit San Francisco

Surrounded by its bay, ensconced in a romantic fog, and filled to the brim with arts and culture, there’s really no reason not to visit San Francisco. Cross the iconic Golden Gate Bridge, taste world-class food, tour diverse neighborhoods—whatever you do, your San Francisco visit is guaranteed to be memorable.

When to Visit San Francisco

The most beautiful time for San Francisco travel is September and October, but those are also the busiest convention months, meaning that many of the city’s hotel rooms are more expensive and booked up than usual. April and May are also nice, though best prices are generally between December and February.

Weather in San Francisco

Yes, this is California, but don’t come to San Francisco with only shorts and tank tops. Visit San Francisco and you’ll find that it can get pretty cold, at least by California standards—and the weather changes quickly. If gorgeous warm weather is your main concern, visit in September and October. Otherwise, pack layers.
