A winter in California is a winter like no other; the state’s most iconic city, San Francisco, is no exception. Warm skies and mild temperatures man it’s never a snowy season, which also makes it the ideal time to explore your surrounding wilderness without feeling too cold. When you’re here, make sure to take advantage of the large range of winter vacation rentals available, that will keep you warm and toasty in the evenings, and act as the perfect base for your outdoor activities. Enjoy the inner city hiking trails of Golden Gate park, which also offers iconic views of the famous bridge, and head to the many overlooks of the Presidio of San Francisco for glimpses into the horizon. The nearby Mount Diablo is a fantastic place to catch mountain trails and panoramas.
