“The coldest winter I ever spent was a summer in San Francisco” – Attributed to Mark Twain

The summer time in San Francisco can be a bit tricky; it is often very windy and gets quite chilly in the evenings. Please be sure to bring some layers just in case. Remember, this is not Los Angeles; there maybe be sun but there is also plenty of wind!
