Visiting San Francisco Bay Area

The City by the Bay is a go-to vacation destination all year round, but the wind can get pretty chilly in the spring, winter, and fall – making it harder to enjoy big tourist draws like Fisherman’s Wharf, Chinatown, Pier 39, the historic Lombard Street, and Golden Gate Park. Summertime graces the Bay Area with highs between 70 and 80 degrees, ensuring a visit to San Francisco and surrounding cities like Oakland, Palo Alto, and San Jose will be a comfortable one.

The Bay Area is home to several storied sports franchises. The San Francisco Giants continue to draw baseball fans to AT&T Park, which overlooks the San Francisco Bay just south of downtown, through the end of September. After dominating the National League West for most of the season, the Giants host their rivals to the south, the Los Angeles Dodgers, for a three-game series July 25th through 27th, and again September 12th through 14th.

As summer wanes, anticipation mounts for the 2014 NFL season and San Francisco 49ers football. Aiming to exact their revenge after a disappointing loss to the Seahawks in the playoffs last year, the Niners take the field for the first time at the all-new Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara on August 17th, when they host the Denver Broncos for preseason action. Then, the excitement boils over as the Red and Gold take on the Chicago Bears for the regular season home opener on September 14th.

Die-hards can get a sense of the 49ers’ history through Candlestick Park Stadium Tours until late August. The hour-long tour gives visitors a one-of-a-kind, behind-the-scenes look at the historic facility, which hosted its final NFL game last December. See the 49ers Hall of Fame, locker rooms, luxury suites, and even walk through the tunnel onto the field where you can run the gridiron like the pros.

Long-time fans won’t want to miss Joe Montana and Dan Marino reliving their embattled rivalry, as they join other NFL greats like Jerry Rice to face off in one last flag football game as a way of saying a fond goodbye to Candlestick Park on July 12th. In a similar sendoff to the stadium, Sir Paul McCartney will play Candlestick’s final concert on August 14th, 48 years after the Beatles played their last concert in front of the same stands in 1966.

San Francisco and the Bay Area have also enjoyed a long and celebrated history of chocolate, thanks largely to the Ghirardelli Chocolate Company. On September 13th and 14th, Ghirardelli Square hosts the 19th Annual Ghirardelli Chocolate Festival, featuring family-friendly fun, complete with cooking demonstrations, desert samples, live music, and the popular Earthquake Ice Cream Sundae Eating Contest.
