After years of living in San Francisco, I love to go back to visit. It’s an easy weekend trip from most places in California either by driving a couple hours or a short flight. It’s a perfect weekend getaway whether you are going with friends or your person.
Even though California might give you visions of sunny skies and warm beaches, San Francisco tends to be a bit chillier, especially in the winter. So packing good warm layers is key. A small umbrella to throw in your purse isn’t a bad idea either. The winter months can be wet and drizzly.
Packing list for San Francisco
A typical weekend in the city for me consists of meeting up with friends for drinks, going out to dinner and maybe a concert, brunch (obviously!) and hitting the climbing gym for a little exercise. So that is what I pack for, comfy and casual during the day, my favorite layering combo is a t-shirt and flannel over it with jeans. Then a little dressier at night for going out, a blouse and cardigan with a warm coat and booties.
