There's a reason why San Francisco was named "The Best City in the World" in 2021, and it probably has to do with the mild winters, scenic hills, and regional culinary staples, like Dungeness crab and a bread bowl full of clam chowder. A day in "Frisco" can range from lavish with broadway shows, concerts, and symphonies, to educational with museums and science exhibits. And be sure to check out SF Restaurant Week and the Bay Area Brew Fest if you consider yourself a "foodie." January is also an excellent time for hiking thanks to the cooler weather and tourist attractions due to fewer crowds. For more SF events, check this page often.
