Pros and Cons of Planning an Event in San Francisco

Ready to hold a shindig in San Fran? While the idea of having a party in a huge, major city is appealing, there are a few disadvantages that you need to think about before finalizing any plans.

Advantages

Welcoming and Diverse
San Francisco is one of the most welcoming cities for all kinds of folk in all of America. For example, the Castro District is famous for its extravagant pride parades, and North Beach is the home to charming Little Italy.

Public Transportation
Getting people to and from your event space in San Francisco, CA is very simple with the city’s many public transportation options. With options like buses, BART, Muni, rideshares, and GoBikes, this city was built for public transport, so it's not a problem to get to downtown San Francisco.

Dog-friendly
A dog-friendly city is a happy city. There is a good chance that your event space will be dog-friendly which is a plus, should this be fitting for the occasion.

Artsy Community
With tons of art colleges, museums, creative shops, and art exhibits, San Francisco's artist community is one of the richest communities in America. This makes San Francisco a prime location for hosting art exhibits and workshops.

Beaches and Parks
Whether you’re a beach-goer or more of a woodsy type, San Francisco, CA has amazing beaches and parks for you to enjoy including Dolores Park, Muir Woods National Park, Fort Funston Beach, and Kirby Cove.

Disadvantages

Weather
When it’s hot, it’s too hot, and when it’s cold, it’s too cold. The weather in San Fran tends to be something one has to adapt to, though some may find that to be an appealing feature.

Fog
Some folks love it, some hate it, but either way, San Francisco is famous for its thick and rolling fog. The fog keeps the air cool, but some people don't like the gloominess that comes with it.

Parking
Too many people, small roads, and the fact that the city was built for bikers, buses, and walkers, are just a few reasons why parking can be very difficult to find in San Francisco.

Cost of Living
The more attractive a city is, the higher the cost of living becomes. San Francisco is one of the most expensive cities to live in in the whole world, which means that venue rentals and services are on the pricier side, too.

Cost of Gas
With the high cost of living comes expensive gas prices, which can surprise your guests who are from out of town. Hiring a shuttle service for your guests can help them save on costs from individually paying for gas money.

Famous Locations in San Francisco

Golden Gate Bridge
One of the most recognizable sights in the world, the Golden Gate Bridge is certainly one of San Francisco's most visited spots. This big red structure is visited by millions of cars every year, and just nearby is the beautiful Golden Gate Park, which has many different gardens worth exploring.

Alcatraz
Once one of the most famous prisons in the world and housing some of the world’s most hardened criminals, Alcatraz is now a major tourist attraction. By riding a ferry, you can visit the old maximum security prisons located on an island in the middle of San Francisco Bay.

San Francisco Museum of Modern Art
