Is there a particularly good time of year to visit San Francisco?

San Francisco possesses the unusual quality of having what are effectively two winters. The first winter spans December through February and is often cloudy, wet and chilly. The second winter spans late June through late September and is often chilly and covered in fog. Ironically, more tourists visit during this latter winter than any other period. Subsequently, the best times to visit are generally in the Spring and Fall. With the warmer weather come a number of street fairs and festivals as well as the annual Fleet Week celebrations and airshows. That noted, winter can be a fine time to visit if you're averse to crowds and interested in discounted accommodations. Just be sure to bring an umbrella.
