San Francisco travel tips

Let us help you with the best tips about San Francisco

Best time to visit San Francisco

San Francisco often has cooler temperatures in summer as compared to fall. The summer months of June – August are frequently accompanied by a chilly damp fog and brisk winds. Average temperatures range from 12 – 19 degrees Celsius. Several fairs and events draw huge crowds of visitors and influence higher hotel rates at this time of the year. September – November is when the weather warms up and average temperatures climb closer to 20 degrees Celsius. To stay comfortable, dress in layers and carry a light jacket as the bayside breeze sometimes leads to sudden drop in temperatures. Winter temperatures are between 8 – 14 degrees Celsius but the ever-present fog can make it seem much colder. There are also frequent rains, so make sure you bring a pair of all-weather boots and an umbrella. Spring may be another good time to visit as the weather is mild, rains are infrequent and hotel prices are yet to rise for the main tourist season in summer.

Getting around San Francisco

If you bring your walking shoes and enjoy the activity, it is possible to explore the compact city of San Francisco on foot, but its hilly neighbourhoods and steeply inclined streets may give you a bit of a workout! The MUNI buses and street cars are your next best option and a single ride costs $2.75 USD. The classic cable cars are an entertaining and leisurely way to travel, but are also more expensive with a single ride fare of $7.00 USD. The Bay Area Rapid Transport (BART) provides a high-speed rail service within the city and connectivity to neighbouring locations, as well as the airport. Taxis and ride shares such as Uber and Lyft are available for longer commutes. The Golden Gate Ferry Service also offers water transport between central SF and other neighbouring parts of the Bay Area.
