Winter’s by far one of the best times of the year. Why? Because it’s cozy and comfortable, and the nice weather inspires people to try a bunch of new things that they usually won’t, especially around the beginning of the year when everyone’s resolutions are at the top of their minds.

Now, if you want to have a chill walk around a breathtaking park during the sunrise or sunset (or your favorite time of the day to enjoy an incomparable San Francisco view), Mission Dolores Park is the spot you can’t miss during this winter. With amenities such as a picnic area, a playground, a dog play area, and, if you’re lucky, you may even experience one of their many cultural events or festivals open to the public. 


Pier 39 is a hot destination to enjoy with family and friends. Visit any of their excellent restaurants and challenge yourself to get into one of their attractions, such as escape rooms, where you can pick if you’d want to escape from a prison-inspired room or a prohibition-era escape room. If solving puzzles isn’t your thing, you can visit the fun Magowan’s Infinite Mirror Maze or even explore the Aquarium of the Bay, where you’ll find magnificent sea creatures such as seven-gill sharks, moon jellies, and bat rays.
