If you’re looking for a more cultural way to explore California, then you can’t really go wrong with San Francisco. An eccentric and bohemian city, San Francisco really does have something for all types of traveller; whatever your interests may be. And whoever you are, the Golden Gates of San Francisco will welcome you in with open arms.
Instantly recognisable from almost every vantage point, San Fran’s appeal has never been fixed on mere landmarks. It’s in the style of its eclectic architecture and the irrepressible energy of its friendly locals that keep people coming back for more. From its diverse neighbourhoods to its bayfront pleasure land and the offshore fortress of the Alcatraz prison, The City by the Bay has a unique charm and character that you simply won’t find elsewhere.
There are so many facets to a holiday in San Francisco, from history to hippies, prisons to parks, seafood to shopping, and art to architecture, that the city really does have to be seen to be believed. The locals are warm and welcoming, and the dining and entertainment scene is second-to-none. Explore the beautiful Victorian buildings, stroll through the crooked streets and prepare to lose your heart to stunning San Francisco.
The weather in San Francisco stays a stable 'cool to mild' throughout the year, however the chilly fog that rolls in from the Pacific Ocean can put a dampener on things during the summer months, whilst the rain is plentiful during the wintertime. The autumn offers some of the city's warmest temperatures and there are fewer crowds than in the summer. Spring is another particularly good time to visit on account of the mild temperatures and lack of rain compared to other parts of California.
