A day doesn’t go by without a San Franciscan daydreaming about their next Mission-style burrito. We also really love arguing where to get the absolute best one.
2. The Fog
San Francisco would not be the same without it. Trust us, it freaks you out when it’s gone, right?
3. Random 80-degree Days in February

4. Free Stuff
Living in one of the most expensive cities in America means you need to be in constant lookout for good deals. Fortunately, there are plenty of
free things to do in San Francisco

unique coffee shops
to prove it.
San Francisco is unarguably one of the best cities to just sit and be entertained my mankind.
