San Francisco The Best Winter Date Ideas in SF OK, so we don’t get snow in SF, which means you’ll have to leave the city if you want to have a romantic snowball fight where you and your lover romp around and end up falling breathlessly to the ground in each other’s warm, welcoming arms. But whatever, ‘cause snow is cold and do you really want piles of it down your pants? Also, just because SF doesn’t have traditional winters doesn’t mean the city doesn’t offer up some pretty cool only-in-winter date ideas. And best of all: if you’re dead set on a date that involves snow down your pants, you only have to drive a few hours away.
