San Francisco is a vibrant and welcoming international city. Summer comes later to the Bay Area and October is generally sunny and beautiful. San Francisco has several great museums including the de Young and Asian Art Museum and the metropolitan area is the home to some of the best private collections of rugs and textiles in the world.
ARTS actively encourages out of town and international visitors. Check this page for information on where to stay during the show and some additional interests and attractions.
