ALL of California gets cooler/foggy at night for most of the summer.  The later in the summer you are, the warmer and less foggy it will be.  Fog usually rolls in around 5-6 pm and burns off 10 am-ish, depending on the day.  No matter where you are, you will need a light jacket/sweatshirt/fleece and jeans at night, but the weather should be warm once the fog burns off in the morning.  You will definitely be able to swim in the ocean by that time, although it won’t be like the east coast.  :o)  September has by far the best weather of the year – it is seriously a gorgeous month.  My husband and I were there last summer during the dates you mention (got married September 5) and the weather was wonderful.  Let me know if you need anything else.

Hi there!  SF can be really cold and foggy during the summer.  As Mark Twain said, “the coldest winter I ever saw was the summer I spent in San Francisco.”  But towards the end, it may be a little bit nicer.  There are SO MANY good places to eat in SF.  I literally don’t even know where to start in listing them!  (I lived there for four years, and miss it SO MUCH!) Definitely check out the dim sum in China town. 

The rest of your trip should be warm and beautiful.  Driving down the 101 would be absolutely beautiful at this time.  Santa Barbara is a great place to stop. 

What are you planning on doing on your trip?

I know that where we are (Central California) August is HOT. It’s usually over 100 degrees. It does cool down some at night though. September is a gorgous month! By the coast I think that it will be warm but comfortable, sounds like fun!
