Best Time to Visit
While temperatures are pleasant all year round, September and November are widely considered the best months to visit the Bay area. With the bulk of tourists having already passed through, fall offers warmer temps and a less crowded city.
What to Pack
Thanks to its proximity to the ocean, the cities and sites near The Bay can be breezy in the mornings, hot in the afternoons, and brisk in the evenings — so be sure to pack plenty of layers!
