Fall is quickly approaching! Before the season starts to change, be sure to commemorate the last days of summer with these classic Bay Area activities:

Twin Peaks: Twin Peaks provides some of the very best views of anywhere in San Francisco. And, it’s free! Be sure to visit on a clear and sunny September or October day to appreciate the panoramic views of the entire city. For an even more spectacular view, visit at Twin Peaks at sunset. While the mini-mountaintop is always windy, it’s always worth it. Wear warm clothing, sturdy walking shoes, and bring a camera with a full battery.

Take a local cruise: One of the top summer activities in San Francisco are the local cruises around the Bay. You can find great deals around the holidays as well as throughout the season.

Go wine tasting: If you love wine, then head to a wine tasting event in San Francisco. You can find wine walks in some of the local districts as well as larger indoor and outdoor festivals all season long. Many offer wines produced locally in Sonoma, Napa and the Livermore Valley. It’s a fun way to learn about wine and find something new to bring home to your friends! 

Union Square activities: Enjoy free live entertainment all season long at Union Square Live. This annual festival offers free music and entertainment on most Wednesdays and Sundays. Attend a kids show, learn how to dance, and listen to local musicians every week!

Theater performances: All summer, you can find dozens of theater performances around San Francisco. Top shows include traveling Broadway companies performing award-winning productions such as The Lion King, Hamilton, and Wicked. You can also catch a small performance by local or up-and-coming writers.

Spend the last days of summer with friends and family soaking in San Francisco’s best offerings before the temperatures dip!
