During April and May, our city transforms from winter’s canvas to summer’s palette. Ships begin their season passage under the majestic Aerial Lift Bridge. And as things thaw out, you’ll find it’s the perfect time—with the perfect temps—for some high-energy biking or trail running. Plus, this is one of the best times of year to find deals.
This is the place to be. Warm (yet comfortable!) weather, blue skies and vivid purple-and-orange sunsets. During the summertime, our city comes alive with visitors here to enjoy our world-class shopping, dining, events and attractions. If you’re here to get outside—and why wouldn’t you be—revel in our vast, colorful playground, where you’ll find outdoor adventures suited for any adrenaline level.
It’s light-jacket weather as autumn’s crispness takes hold on the city by the bay. It’s ideal weather for hiking, biking, camping or a leisurely drive. And, as the summer season winds down, you’ll find our city is even more peaceful. And the colors will take your breath away.
