Getting out there
San Francisco's climate lives between extremes of hot and cold, so it's nearly always comfortable - even when you're doing adventurous things that involve a raised pulse rate. If you factor some action into your itinerary, you'll really get to know the city.
Pack your active wear and become an urban hiker. The hilly landscape includes secret stairways, entrancing trails and killer views. Make sure you find San Francisco's 'painted ladies' - a tight formation of ornate Victorian houses against a backdrop of skyscrapers.
