June 2019: Wondering what things to do in San Francico this summer? The fog may be out in full force, but that just means we know how to take full advantage of those rare sunny days. Among the best things to do in San Francisco this summer are annual events like the free concerts at Stern Grove (#1), Giants games at Oracle Park (#10) and the return of Off the Grid at Fort Mason on Friday nights and the Presidio Main Post on Thursday nights and Sunday afternoons (#5). Also on the list are summertime staples that you can enjoy any night of the week: a seasonal cocktail at a rooftop bar (#3), shopping fresh produce at the Ferry Building farmers market (#15) and admiring the blooms at the SF Botanical Garden (#4).
