San-Francisco is incomparable when it comes to beautiful geographical locations. This sophisticated city overlooks the beautiful bay and glistening Pacific Ocean as the magnificent Golden Gate Bridge rises above the city's skyscrapers. Built on twenty-nine small hills at the tip of the peninsula, it has been said that San Francisco is "the city that everyone loves." It's little wonder that it's been named the "country's top city" a total of seven times by readers of Conde Nast Traveler. With a decided European flare, San Francisco is an intellectual and culturally diverse city. Just a few of the must see places include Chinatown, Alcatraz Island and Prison, Pier 39, Coit Tower and the Cable Car Barn and Museum. Union Street, Ghiradelli Square, Fisherman's Wharf and The Cannery are all filled with lively action - the clattering of cable cars, street musicians, ships blowing their horns as they reach harbor, and seagulls screeching overhead - it all combines to create a colorful, eclectic feel to this "City by the Bay." You can spend a whole day in the 1,000-acre Golden Gate Park alone, taking in the Strybing Arboretum and Botanical Gardens, the M.H. de Young Memorial Museum, the Asian Art Museum and the Japanese Tea Gardens. The city of San Francisco is known for its world class restaurants, shopping, hotels and nightlife - sure to make your evenings unforgettable. The echo of cable cars in the distance, the smell of the ocean, the spectacular views of the Bay - one visit and you're likely to leave your heart in San Francisco, too.

San Francisco Weather & Climate

Mark Twain once said, "the coldest winter I ever spent was a summer in San Francisco." While this might be a slight exaggeration, the climate in the San Francisco Bay Area is mild year round with cool evenings - even in the summertime. Cool breezes from the Pacific Ocean help moderate the summer heat and marine influences keep winters very mild. The San Francisco Bay Area is known for its fog, especially in the summertime. This occurs when warm air masses flow across a cooler ocean and the moisture in the air condenses and forms fog. The rainy season in northern California runs November through March, with no measurable precipitation in the summertime. Spring and fall are generally the sunniest, and warmest, seasons in the Bay area.
