May Festivities in San Francisco
As many natives already know, May in San Francisco was practically made for outdoor activities and boozy festivals. The combination of the nearly perfect weather with two annual beer and wine festivals and city-wide Mardi Gras and Cinco de Mayo celebrations make The Bay one sweet place to be in the heart of Springtime.
