Your San Francisco vacation

Take one perfectly located peninsula, and mix in world-class dining, parks, culture and charm. The result? San Francisco, the City by the Bay. With a laissez-faire vibe dating back to the Gold Rush, this city boasts ethnic enclaves and an eclectic populace drawn to the beauty of the Pacific Coast. Visit hippie history in the Haight, or shop elegant Union Square. Take a cable car up Nob Hill, and swoon over colorful Victorians and Bay views.

Let Orbitz help you plan the perfect San Francisco vacation. With insider tips and top attractions, you'll get the skinny on Golden Gate Park, Chinatown and where to explore and eat on your San Francisco trip.

Best time to take a vacation to San Francisco

San Francisco's climate is mild year-round, so forget about packing wool -- or shorts. Daytime temperatures rarely rise above 75 or drop below 55. Summer is notoriously cool, with fog and chilly Pacific breezes, and neighborhood "micro-climates" can mean balmy conditions in the Mission District, but chillier conditions in the Outer Richmond. Summer is also peak tourist season, and late June's LGBT Pride Celebration Parade is one of the biggest in the country.

May, September and October have less fog and, locals contend, the best weather. December, January and February are the coldest and wettest months, while January brings the Chinese New Year's Parade.

What looks like a tourist trap is actually a foodie paradise, with oysters (Hog Island), cheese (Cowgirl Creamery), a fantastic farmer's market and more.

Seward Street Slides

These concrete sliding tubes re-teach what you knew when you were six: Gravity is fun. Be sure to bring your own cardboard to slide on, though.

The Alembic

The Haight's perfect drinking/dining combo defines the term "gastropub": world-class artisan cocktails crafted with love, and a food menu to match.

Twin Peaks and the Exploratorium are just a few of the interesting tourist attractions around here. Further worthwhile options include the California Academy of Sciences and Golden Gate Park. You should definitely do your best to get to all of them.
