We rarely get two chances to celebrate the New Year, but, with the new Lunar New Year long weekend offers in San Francisco, you can do just that. Plan ahead for the Feb. 8–March 6, 2019, festivities and check in with a Hilton Hotel participating in the seasonal festivities.

Both Parc 55 San Francisco — a Hilton Hotel and Hilton San Francisco Union Square offer Lunar New Year long weekend specials. Travelers and locals can check in for a long weekend vacation surrounded by a mix of fun excursions and leisure activities, all focused on the Lunar New Year.

Spend the day exploring the city at your own pace and stop in the Asian Art Museum and visit the local shops and various city landmarks, including the must-visit Chinatown neighborhood. A standout from others, San Francisco’s Chinatown is one of the oldest and largest in the country. Stroll through the Dragon’s Gate into a busy city street lined with authentic shops, restaurants, herbalists, bakeries, karaoke bars and the Chinese Historical Society of America Museum.

So, what exactly is the deal? It’s refreshingly simple: Both Parc 55 San Francisco and Hilton San Francisco Union Square’s Lunar New Year Long Weekender offers include the same thing. Guests have easy access to Union Square attractions from the iconic cable cars and downtown shops and eateries. The package is $209 per night, Friday and Saturday, based on double occupancy with a 50 percent discount on the third night, Sunday. The package includes accommodations and discounted tickets to the Asian Art Museum’s “Kimono Refashioned” exhibit, which can be booked through the hotel.

Piedmont Paradise

DON’T EXPECT TURIN TO FIT your image of Italy. It’s Italian, all right — the evening passeggiata and a love of good food and wine are alive and well. But you’ll look in vain for medieval cobbled streets, crumbling castles and works by Michelangelo (who never set foot here). Instead, although you’ll find some Roman ruins, you’ll also find a faux medieval village, a world-class film museum and a café life that rivals Vienna’s. You and your family will have fun here.
