Did You Know?

Fog envelopes San Francisco Bay, leaving only the top of the Golden Gate Bridge visible.

“The coldest winter I ever spent was a summer in San Francisco.” Many attribute this phrase to Mark Twain, however the origin is unknown. It is a good thing to remember when visiting San Francisco Maritime during the summer. Don’t forget a coat, as the summer fog keeps temperatures in the city cool.
