For the locals of San Francisco a foggy week (or month) in July or August, while still a bummer, is nothing too surprising. For visitors to our fair city from basically anywhere else in the world where July and August mean hot days and warm nights, our cool, foggy summer days can come as a shock to the system. But fear not! There are plenty of great ways to have fun in the summertime fog, even if your only dose of vitamin D comes during the brief window of sun that happens precisely between 3:36PM and 4:52PM.
1. Get a dose of colorful culture with San Francisco’s many museums. Whether you head to the newly reopened SF MOMA, the Asian Art Museum, the Contemporary Jewish Museum, or the Museum of Craft and Design, you’ll be sure to get all the colors Karl the fog is depriving you of- aside from grey, of course.
2. Catch a film at theaters big or small. With exceptional movie theaters like the Clay, the Alamo Drafthouse, Sundance Kabuki, the Embarcadero Center, and smalls screening projects like Oddball Films, there is no excuse for watching Netflix on your computer in bed (well, at least not if you’re here on vacation!).
5. Make some four-legged friends. Visit a branch of the SF SPCA to say hi to some kittens and puppies.
