Best winter, crappiest summer

San Francisco

Posted by: Amanda George

I can't tell you how many times growing up I would see a game show on TV giving a "sunny" San Francisco vacation as a prize. My typical reaction would be amused laughter. Somebody should tell them not to bother packing shorts. It's true the Bay Area doesn't have huge temperature or weather differences between seasons, which can make for a pretty mild winter. But every time summer rolls around and people want to spend the day in SF, I can't help thinking they're a little crazy. I live in the mid-peninsula south of SF and that's the real gem. :) We have wonderful weather all year round, room to breathe, parking, and lots of greenery. I may not trip over 3 restaurants the second I walk out my door, but I'll exchange that for sunny blue skies any day. :)
