What to add to your suitcase?

  • SF is a city where the weather changes on a whim and the microclimates create quite variable weather conditions. We recommend to pack a few extra layers: a scarf, a light jacket or warm cardigan for chilly evenings.  Sometimes it's sunny in the morning, but you never know when the town's mascot, Karl the Fog, is going to crash the party.
