Spring and Summer 2022: Events to Enjoy in the Bay Area

Spring and Summer 2022

San Francisco is absolutely wonderful during spring and summer. The weather is perfect for all kinds of activities, from street fairs to concerts to food festivals. Make sure to stay in a centrally-located boutique hotel in San Francisco so you can be close to the action. Here are some events to put on your itinerary..

Mothers day

Mother’s Day

This year, Mother’s Day technically falls on May 8, but it can be celebrated throughout the month. Treat your mom to a luxurious San Francisco holiday complete with a weekend in a 5-star boutique hotel. There are so many things to see, including the Japanese Tea Garden, the Palace of Fine Arts, the Painted Ladies at Alamo Square, and of course, the iconic Golden Gate bridge that can be viewed from many vantage points. You can even sign up for a Segway tour or go on a bay cruise!

Does your mom like to shop? There are name brand boutiques and large department stores everywhere, but if she prefers bargains, take her to Chinatown or Pier 39. Is she looking for delicious local specialties? Then Ghirardelli Square is a place to be.

Waterways

Island City Waterways Show

Enjoy music, theater, and dance celebrating Alameda’s distinctive waterfront. This outdoor art event is happening from May 21 to 22. It’s free, but reservations are required.
