We all know these legendary lyrics ‘If you come to San Francisco, summertime will be a love-in there.’ But what about the gloomy month of November? It turns out the city has a lot to offer in this time of the year, as well.
Although San Francisco isn’t the most wintry city, it still skilfully creates the magic atmosphere of winter holidays every year. Among the factors that contribute to it are ice rinks, especially the one at Union Square. It’s an affordable way to have fun for the young and the old and to get away from the hustle and bustle at least for some time.

For those who want to discover San Francisco on foot, the city offers free walking tours. Every day there are around 10 tours available all over the city, which are conducted by professional city guides. They are free of charge, but small donations at the end of the tour are appreciated.
5.Indian Film Festival
For 40 years in a row, the American Indian Film Festival has been bringing awareness of the life and struggles of Native Americans. If you want to get an insight, check out the Metreon Theater that will screen different documentaries and films about the Indians in November.
