July 2022

It’s officially Summer!! Don’t get too excited pulling out your shorts and t-shirts anticipating that California sun while exploring San Francisco's top attractions like the Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz and Coit Tower. You’ll be far more likely to bump into Karl the fog, who tends to dampen any summery mood. So layer up! Wear your best walking shoes, and get ready to take in San Francisco’s summer festivities. Here is what’s happening in San Francisco in the month of July! 

San Francisco in The Summer! Here's a famous San Francisco Quote!

"The coldest winter I ever spent was a summer in San Francisco."

- Mark Twain
