The Best Time To Visit
The best time to visit San Francisco is during the Spring or Fall, when it’s warm and sunny. Winters are usually mild too, especially compared to the East Coast. The fog – San Francisco’s natural air-conditioner – rolls in along the coast during the summer months (mornings and evenings). So, if you’re planning a trip in July or August, bring layers, just in case. Note to tourists: Never refer to San Francisco as “Frisco” or “San Fran” – San Francisco or SF is just fine.
