New Year's Fireworks

January 1

San Francisco’s New Year’s celebrations take over the city thanks to its spectacular fireworks show. The fireworks show usually lasts about 15 minutes and is synced to music with speakers along the promenade. Watch them from the water on a cruise, or from the towns of Sausalito or Tiburon. Unfortunately we can’t promise that there won’t be fog!
