Give a Gift to Yourself with These Awesome SF Holiday Events
A new year is around the corner and, like almost everyone at this time of year, you’ve probably been busy, busy, busy. Last-minute shopping, family obligations, holiday parties at work — all good, but it all adds up and makes the season fly by too fast. Before you know, it will be 2018 and this year will be a memory.
So why not take some time for yourself, slow down, and enjoy the holidays a little bit here in SF?
At SCH we’ve got a holiday package to help you establish a little home away from home for a few days. And the city has plenty of things happening that will help you recharge your batteries and head into the new year a little less shell-shocked.
It’s a really good strategy if you want to make 2018 a #NeverStopStartingUp kind of year.
