Traveling to San Francisco
With two international airports nearby, getting to San Francisco is easy. San Francisco International Airport (SFO) hosts many flights to and from Asia and Europe, making it an ideal choice for travelers from abroad. Another option is Oakland International Airport (OAK), which serves many budget airlines as well. Both airports are located about 13 miles outside of downtown San Francisco. Car rental services are available in both locations. Driving time from the airports to the city center is about 20 to 30 minutes.
If you prefer public transportation, you can also access the regional rail service from either airport. A trip on the Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) system is a hassle-free way to get to and from the airport to your San Francisco vacation home.
Foods of the world
Staying in a San Francisco vacation rental guarantees that you will have access to the plentiful restaurants and eateries of the city. No matter what cuisine you're looking for, you are sure to find many options that will suit every taste and budget. For authentic Chinese food, visit one of the many restaurants in Chinatown. If you prefer Mexican food, try Rosa Mexicano in the Financial District. For Italian specialties, check out Little Italy. Fans of Japanese, Indian, Mediterranean, and almost any other type of food will also find something tasty in San Francisco.
The plethora of dining options is simply a reflection of the diversity and appeal of this amazing city. Book a stay in a San Francisco vacation rental and experience it all for yourself!
Pleasant weather all year round
One of San Francisco's most appealing aspects is its rarely-changing temperatures. Almost every day of the year is between 60 and 70 degrees, a pleasant effect of the cool currents from the nearby Pacific Ocean. Even the warmest and coolest months of the year (September and January) remain within this temperature range.
Must-see sights near your San Francisco vacation home
Staying in a San Francisco vacation rental allows you the freedom to visit San Francisco's many attractions at your own convenience. A must-see for any visitor is the Golden Gate Bridge. One of the most iconic structures in modern history, the Golden Gate Bridge has been in operation since 1937. Every day, during daylight, you can walk or bike along the bridge to take in beautiful views of the San Francisco Bay, or perhaps view the bridge from nearby Golden Gate Park.
Another famous landmark in San Francisco is the former prison of Alcatraz, located on an island in the bay. The site first housed a lighthouse (the first on the West Coast) before being converted to a prison, which was in use from 1934 to 1963. Some of America's most notorious criminals were housed in Alcatraz, including Al Capone. The building is now open for public viewing and is accessible by ferries that run frequently. Visitors can tour the prison on their own or follow along with an optional audio tour.
For an exciting day out with the family, visit Fisherman's Wharf along San Francisco Bay. This prime location offers excellent views of the bay and of Alcatraz; it is also a great place to catch a glimpse of some sea lions. In addition, Fisherman's Wharf is home to an array of shops, restaurants, and attractions. From fish markets to Madame Tussaud's Wax Museum and the Aquarium of the Sea, there is something for every family member to enjoy at Fisherman's Wharf.
A rich cultural scene
A cosmopolitan city, San Francisco also boasts world-class art. With a variety of art museums, such as the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art and the Asian Art Museum, art lovers of all types are sure to be satisfied. But fear not, science buffs: San Francisco has something for you too! The California Academy of Sciences is a fascinating natural history museum, complete with an aquarium and planetarium.
If you or your friends are fans of the performing arts, you must visit the San Francisco War Memorial and Performing Arts Center, a 7.5-acre complex that hosts opera, ballet, lectures, plays, art exhibits, and more. The San Francisco Opera and the San Francisco Ballet are both housed in the complex, along with the San Francisco Symphony. At the nearby Veterans Building, you will find the San Francisco Arts Commission Gallery, where various contemporary art exhibits are displayed. If jazz is right up your alley, check out the program at the SF Jazz Center or explore a number of clubs on Fillmore Street.
