Gay San Francisco During the Holidays

Published Date Author: , December 5th, 2010

Gay San FranciscoSan Francisco is the gayest city in the United States. As far back as 1964, Life magazine declared the City by the Bay the “gay capital of the nation.” After all, this is where Harvey Milk first stood at the corner of Market and Castro, paving the way for the Castro to become the heart of LGBT life.

In addition to gay life, San Francisco has plenty of worthwhile attractions like Alcatraz, the MoMa, the DeYoung Museum, and Golden Gate Park among many others. There are ferries, bridges, bike rides and hikes. Our city is a 49 square mile wonderland, with distinct neighborhoods and amazing contrasts.

This creative city is often shrouded in fog, especially in the mornings, and maintains a mild climate year-round. The city features many microclimates, so a light jacket is an essential daily item even on the sunniest days. You may have heard the saying, “the coldest winter I have ever spent is a summer in San Francisco,” so beware! Summer in San Francisco actually arrives in September and October, when the Indian Summer delivers near-perfect mid-70s weather for 2 months straight.
