A nature walk: One of our city’s most beautiful displays of natural wonder, San Francisco Botanical Garden is open and free on Thanksgiving Day. Located in the heart of Golden Gate Park, the Garden offers a welcome break from the bustling city during the holiday season. Check out these amazing photos.

Light up Market Street! Always a popular holiday event, the 2017 “Snowflakes on Market” Lighting Ceremony highlights the illumination of over 250 LED snowflakes on SF’s main thoroughfare. SF Ballet School students dance in snowflake tutus and live music will lift your holiday spirit.
