Pros and Cons of Art Exhibits in San Francisco

Even if you choose the most popular city in the world, they all have their pros and cons. Here are a few advantages and disadvantages of planning an art exhibit space in San Francisco.

Advantages

  • Spectacular weather
    You would be crazy not to love the weather in San Francisco. With temps in the 60s year-round and less than average rainfall, those who like sunny skies and warm breezes will love it here.

  • Fun activities

  • Excellent public transportation

Disadvantages

  • Traffic is a nightmare
    Perhaps the reason San Francisco has such great public transport is because of the traffic. No matter what time of day you go out, even in the middle of the night, there just seems to be tons of people trying to get somewhere.

  • High cost of living
    Eating at a typical mid-range restaurant in San Francisco will cost you double the national average and groceries will cost you a bundle as well. Gas prices are ridiculous, and you have to do your homework to find the best deals on hotels, rental cars, and whatever else you may need.

  • Equally high crime rate
    You will want to be careful out on the streets of San Francisco depending on what neighborhood you are in. Some of the safest include Excelsior, Outer Sunset, and the Financial District.
