    Today we check out some don't do's of San Fran, based on www.sftravel.com's article.
    Don’t pack a tropical wardrobe; the mercury hovers around 60 degrees even in summer.
    Don’t park on a hill or even a slope without cramping your wheels to the curb, setting the hand brake and putting the car in parking gear. It’s the law.
    Don’t stand directly behind a cable car gripman; you’ll get the wind knocked out of you when he jerks back on the brake lever.
    Don’t send for an ambulance if you hear a chorus of moans, groans, grunts and wails, it’s the foghorns.
    Don’t carry a milk pail to Cow Hollow; the old dairy district west of Van Ness Avenue has become a popular shopping sector.
    Don’t call cable cars trolleys; they’re powered by the moving steel cable you hear humming in the slot beneath your feet.
    Don’t plan to go swimming in San Francisco Bay unless you’re a member in good standing of the Polar Bear Club.
    Don’t board a public conveyance without exact fare; the drivers don’t make change.
    Don’t be caught without an umbrella; the coastal mists are capricious.
    Don’t color the bridge over the Golden Gate gold; it’s International Orange.
    It’s ’”the city by the bay” not “the city on the bay”
    Above all, don’t call it “Frisco” or “San Fran.”

    San Francisco used to be called "Frisco" as a nickname in the sixties,70s and 80s.

    Truthfully, if you're visiting from Dec-Feb then you might want to bring an umbrella. March - July are cool and comfortable. September- November are the "Indian Summer" months; meaning that it will be about 70 degrees Fahrenheit but feel like 85.

    It's not really mist. It's Foggy San Francisco. Just bring a hoodie and you'll be fine. We've had a drought for many years now. Rain is rare and typically just check the forecast before you're here and it's fine. Yes it's cold here especially at night. We have the winds as we are by the coastline. It can get warm sometimes in the day. Can't go wrong with layers. Just don't expect to wear shorts for the entire day and not freeze your bum off unless you're used to wearing it all the time in the cold.

    Also please carry a bit of extra cash for the street vendors (I got some beautiful hand made necklaces when I want home last summer) and the buskers (some of very talented and play very good music; they earn their tips). If you are visiting someone who lives on the edge of town, park your car at their place and take public transit into downtown. There some bus lines that run all night. Get a route map at the office at Market and Van Ness. And never mind the umbrella, always carry a sweater or coat. Even on warm days it can get cold quickly. And its not mist; it's called fog.

    But you MAY call it "THE CITY," "Ess Eff" or "Bagdad by the Bay." And don't expect to go swimming at "North Beach." In fact, don't expect to find any beach at all at North Beach (Little Italy).

    Exactly, you need a waterproof slicker. Nothing heavy. This is amusing. You don't have foghorns in England? There are the Trolleys that run on Market and 3rd street. It doesn't rain all the time it's not misty all the time. The weather is changeable but pretty nice over all. Just go to Chinatown and eat Dim Sum. You'll be happy.

    DON'T bring an umbrella to San Francisco. The streets are littered with the broken umbrellas that our frequent winds destroy. But not to worry. Most San Franciscans have memories of the first and..................last..........time they used an umbrella.
