Stay Festive in San Francisco This Holiday Season

Planning a trip to San Francisco? Holiday season travelers can pick no finer a destination – nobody does Christmas like NorCal. Your stay will be colored by the spirit of the season in this iconic city. You’ll have plenty to do, even on Christmas Day. Here are a few things to look forward to when you stay in any of our serviced apartments in San Francisco—the most extraordinary place to experience America’s holiday season.

1.The Fairmont Gingerbread House

As one of the city’s longest-standing traditions, anybody staying in our short-term furnished apartments in San Francisco are strongly encouraged to visit this larger-than-life gingerbread house.

You can even book a holiday tea for your entire party, and you’ll get all that goes with it in this full-service high tea banquet hall. You and yours will enjoy delicate pastries, gourmet tea sandwiches, and some of the city’s finest loose-leaf tea.

2. Illuminate SF

Created by an array of acclaimed international and local artists, Illuminate SF is lighting up the streets of San Francisco for this 10th annual festival. The lights can be experienced throughout the city from Embarcadero to the Inner Sunset and North Beach to Bayview. Once dusk sets across the city expect to experience San Francisco as you never have before.

The festival takes place from November 9 and runs until January 31, 2023. It is a great and free way to experience the holiday magic as you walk or drive throughout the streets of San Francisco.

3. The Nutcracker, Courtesy of the San Francisco Ballet

While staying in our serviced apartments in San Francisco, seeing the San Francisco Ballet in all its glory is non-negotiable. The Nutcracker is the perfect reason to attend, especially for any tourist who’s never seen a San Francisco Ballet presentation in person.

The Company will present this Tchaikovsky classic throughout December—check out the listings and grab your tickets early, as these shows tend to sell out quickly. Even if you’re not traveling with kids, it’s a cultural experience you’ll genuinely enjoy.

4. Artisan Holiday Markets

The San Francisco holiday season is abundant with Christmas gatherings of merchants, foodies, and other merrymakers. Holiday markets are the ultimate places to catch up on any shopping you have—you’ll find one-of-a-kind gifts your loved ones will go gaga over.

The Make Good Market, the Magickal Market, the Holiday Open House, and the Holiday Artisan Market at Makers Row are all epicenters dedicated to the best of this 2022 holiday season. Tree lighting, live entertainment, and tons of street food all await. Consult each official website to confirm which nights you plan to be there.

5. Union Square at Christmas

Nothing screams “Christmas” like an 83-foot tree dominating the city center. Stop by Union Square to catch a glimpse of this San Francisco legend any time during December.

Of course, Union Square is a great place to be during the holidays, even if only for the incredible shopping selection the area offers. If you’re hoping to feel the season’s spirit, you’ll find holiday cheer in no short supply with iconic palm trees lit up with Christmas lights and tickets to stop at San Francisco’s famous outdoor ice rink for a bit of skating. It’s one memory you’ll remember for a very long time.
