Three days in San Francisco

Second in a series highlighting cities you can fly to nonstop from Boston.

Weather in the City by the Bay is famously fickle — foggy one moment, gloriously sun-splashed the next — but San Franciscans know how to enjoy the great outdoors (dress in layers). The waterfront beckons at every turn, and there are endless ways to take it in, whether it’s with a ferry ride around the Golden Gate Bridge, a surf session at the beach, or a bike excursion in search of neighborhood eats. Food fuels every activity, and Bay Area chefs and producers have long been leaders in how to eat local; an ever-excellent roster of restaurants means it’s high time for a taste test.
