What’s that famous Mark Twain line? Never have I a spent a colder winter than a summer in San Francisco? It’s something thereabouts, anyway. And while funny, it’s not entirely off-mark. In the summertime the clouds hang low inland, fresh off the ocean and hide the sun and enwrap San Franciscans in a damp blanket of grey. So what’s wintertime like then, you ask?
Well if you’re thinking it’s all cold and blankets, you’ve got another thing coming. San Francisco in the winter is as lively a spot as you’re likely to find, and, all things considered, has a pretty mild winter. It never snows, and the temperature, thanks to the Pacific Ocean, doesn’t dip below freezing too often. In addition, there are a slew of wintertime activities to take part in.
