San Francisco is a colourful, creative city, revelling in freedom and openness. Often eccentric, always charming, this vibrant destination has much to offer, from its eclectic neighbourhoods and stunning surroundings to its wonderful seafood and architecture.
San Francisco is characteristic of the cool, dry summer and mild, wet winters. Temperatures exceed 75 °F (24 °C) on average only 28 days a year. Whatever time of the year you visit San Francisco; it is always wise to carry a jacket or sweater with you!
