With dependable warmer days and sunnier skies, San Francisco in the fall is one of the best times to visit! No matter if you are planning a weekend getaway or here for a week there are many ways to enjoy San Francisco in Autumn. Make your stay at Inn San Francisco even better by enjoying these fall activities in and around the city.


  1. Enjoy the Harvest

Fall means harvest time in San Francisco and surrounding areas. Take advantage of this bountiful time of the season by visiting local farmer’s markets such as the Saturday market at the San Francisco Ferry Building. Or head out about an hour outside of the city to Napa or Sonoma to enjoy the wineries’ fall harvest. Most will have harvest parties and immersive learning events to understand more about their farms and their produce. Even hop aboard the Napa Valley Wine Train to gain the full experience of autumn in wine country.

  1. Head outdoors

With warmer weather, fewer people, and sunnier skies San Francisco in Autumn is one of the best times to head outdoors and enjoy the city’s green spaces or offshores activities. Charter a boat around San Francisco Bay, grab your binoculars for whale watching, or head out for a hike on the coastal trails of Marin Headlands. Muir Woods is another ideal outdoor escape during the fall with towering redwood trees and beautiful trails.

Or tour our Mission District neighborhood during Litquake, a literary festival featuring author lunches, writing workshops, and evening readings. If the written word isn’t your creative draw then attend the SF Open Studios, when over 800 emerging artists showcasing their talents at various art galleries. And what fall season would be complete without a nod to the Bavarian culture with Oktoberfest by the Bay.
