San Francisco Travel Guide

Trips to San Francisco, which is located on a peninsula between the San Francisco Bay and the Pacific Ocean, offer cable cars, hilly and roller-coaster like streets, Victorian architecture, luxury boutiques, nouveau restaurants, walkable beaches, and of course, the gorgeous Golden Gate Bridge. You might just be lucky enough to get a glimpse of it on your flight to San Francisco if you have a window seat but if not, you’ll surely want to see it – or drive on it – at some point after you land. The view alone of the Golden Gate Bridge glinting in the sunlight makes catching a cheap flight to San Francisco worth it. Views of the bridge and surrounding bay area are especially majestic when the fog rolls in.

San Francisco is also well known for its laid-back liberal lifestyle. In fact, San Francisco was the first city in the U.S. to allow gay marriage. In 2004, hundreds of gay couples from around the nation boarded flights to San Francisco and waited in line to say “I do.” Today, the city maintains its laissez-faire ambience and treats its visitors to the same type of carefree manner. San Francisco also served as the birthplace of the dot.com birth, and subsequently the dot.com bust, and continues to thrive today as a city of entrepreneurs and invention.

Book a flight to San Francisco to be in a city that is constantly on the list of America’s most expensive cities to live in, and property values continue to rise to some of the highest in the nation. This vibrant city is made up of several distinct and inviting neighborhoods, many of which you’ll want to see and visit, including North Beach, one of the most beloved. Pacific Heights is swanky with elegant mansions; the Castro is known around the world as a center for progressive gay culture; Chinatown is the largest of its kind that you will find without flying to Asia; and Haight-Ashbury, no longer the epicenter of hippie culture, still holds on to its laidback vibe even as its streets fill with exclusive boutiques and hip – though pricey – restaurants.

Culture buffs flying to San Francisco have endless venues and activities to choose from on their vacation. The city is home to the San Francisco Opera, one of the largest companies in the United States. The Fillmore, a historic music venue, gained fame in the 1960s, housing a stage where now-famous musicians such as Janis Joplin and Jefferson Airplane first performed and created what is known as the “San Francisco Sound.” The San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (SFMOMA) is home to cherished 20th Century and contemporary works of art. The California Academy of Sciences, a natural history museum, also hosts the Morrison Planetarium and Steinhart Aquarium. You’ll also want to be sure to visit Fisherman’s Wharf, where you’ll find restaurants, shops and more. Another can’t miss is a visit to Alcatraz Island. A ferry can take you from the mainland over to the “Rock” (for a fee of course), and there you can tour the infamous federal penitentiary that was once home to notorious inmates like Al Capone and Whitey Bulger, before it shut down in the early 1960’s. San Francisco is also home to great sports franchises such as the San Francisco 49ers of the NFL and a Major League Baseball team, the San Francisco Giants.

With all the entertainment options and the wide range of culture and diversity in San Francisco, it’s no wonder the city thrives on tourism. Flights to San Francisco are always filled with travelers seeking a reprieve from life’s everyday chaos. There is so much to see and do in the city by the bay, it’s hard to figure out where to start and how to fit it all in. Here are some tips to help you plan and enjoy the smoothest possible trip to San Francisco.

Getting to and around the city of San Francisco

The easiest and most convenient way to travel from San Francisco International Airport (SFO) to the city is from the Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) station. It’s located in the International Terminal, and you can take a free AirTrain from all terminals to the BART station. You will need to buy a ticket from the BART station before you travel, or you can book in advance and exchange your voucher for the correct ticket, which is kind of like a debit card which you keep for your time in San Francisco. Another option is to get a taxi from outside of the airport, but just remember that your driver will expect a tip. You can also take a bus or a shared van from the airport; simply tell the driver where you want to go and he’ll add you to his route and tell you the price. You can also rent a car but renting a car in San Francisco may be more trouble than it is worth. The city is covered with steep hills and one-way streets, traffic backups can be a nightmare, and parking is scarce and expensive. You’ll only really need a car if you’re heading out of town.

It’s easy to get around the city of San Francisco on foot and the public transportation system can get you anywhere else. San Francisco’s main transportation network is the San Francisco Municipal Railway (Muni). It has many bus lines with electric trolley buses as well as the famous historic cable cars. Riding one of the cable cars from Nob Hill down to Fisherman’s Wharf is an integral part of the San Francisco tourist experience. Check out the Muni Passports that offer unlimited rides for several days (for a fee of course). Biking is also a popular way to get around, but you’ll have to steel yourself to get up and over some of the hills. The easiest way to get a cab is calling ahead or lining up for one at a hotel stand. To get out of the city, you can hop aboard the BART, the fast and efficient subway linking the city to the East Bay. You can also catch one of the many ferries sailing for Sausalito, Larkspur and Tiburon.

Tips for your stay in San Francisco

  • Golden Gate Park, larger than Central Park in New York, is a wonderful green space. It boasts some major attractions such as the Japanese Tea Garden, the Music Concourse Area, the M. H. de Young Memorial Museum and the Academy of Sciences, one of the largest natural history museums in the world. The park is also home to the San Francisco Botanical Garden, which features thousands of plant species.
  • The National AIDS Memorial Grove, also found within Golden Gate Park, was first envisioned in 1988 by a small group of San Franciscans who were looking for a way to express their grief at the deaths of so many family members and friends. Today, this serene space is a living tribute to all whose lives have been touched by AIDS.
  • Alcatraz is more than just the prison where notorious criminals and others languished. The island was the location of the first U.S. fort and lighthouse on the West Coast. Make reservations in advance if you intend on visiting, perhaps as you book your cheap flights to San Francisco, as tours fill up quickly. If visiting at the end of September, watch or join the Alcatraz Invitational Swim.
  • Wine country is just an hour or so from San Francisco. Most of California’s wineries are in Napa Valley and Sonoma Valley. Napa Valley has more wineries and attracts more tourists. Sonoma is lower key with family-run wineries.
  • If you are brave enough, attempt to drive your vehicle down San Francisco’s “crookedest” street, Lombard. This famous street is extra steep and features numerous hairpin turns that you’ll need to navigate. If traveling with a companion, have him or her take a picture of you driving from the bottom of the street for a memorable photograph.
  • Make sure to take a photo of San Francisco’s famous “Postcard Row,” which is made up of a number of Victorian homes situated side by side, all built in the late 1800’s. This row of houses is one of the city’s most famous vistas, as people come from far and wide to take a snap of the “Painted Ladies.” You may also recognize it from the opening credits of the famous TV show Full House.

San Francisco, CA airport overview

San Francisco International Airport (SFO) is located 13 miles (21 km) south of downtown San Francisco and is the largest airport in the Bay Area and the second-busiest airport in California.

Comprising four terminals – Terminals 1, 2, 3 and the International Terminal – that form a ring around a multi-story Domestic Airport parking garage, San Francisco International is easy to navigate. Terminals 1-3 handle all domestic flights, while the International Terminal mainly manages international flights. Customs, immigrations and baggage claims are generally fast; staff are friendly, signage is good and transport to and from the airport is excellent.  Delays are common, though, due to the region’s adverse weather patterns; however, there are plans to extend the runways in order to aid aircraft flying in low visibility conditions.

San Francisco International is clean and modern. With its newly revamped Terminal 2 housing an award-winning aviation museum and library, along with an extensive array of retail, dining, entertainment and health establishments, it is truly a world-class facility.

Flights to San Francisco International Airport comes from a number of destinations worldwide, including Toronto, Paris, Tokyo, London, Hong Kong, Seoul, Lima, Frankfurt, Singapore, San Salvador, Beijing, Mexico City, Sydney and Cancun, in addition to numerous domestic routes.

  • What’s the weather like in San Francisco?

    If you’re looking for tank-top weather and margaritas on the beach, cancel your flight to San Francisco. The city by the bay is surprisingly chilly, even in summer. Sitting in the upper deck at AT&T Park in June watching a Giants game might actually be quite frigid, believe it or not. Summer temperatures occasionally go above 70 degrees and usually start with a morning fog over the city. Because of the fog, the city rarely sees more than a few hot days in a row, but just a few miles inland it’s clear, hot, and dry. Book airline tickets to San Francisco in the fall when clear skies and comfortable temperatures still grace the city, and the city is not quite as busy with tourists. Winter temperatures are usually in the 40’s and 50’s and rarely go below freezing. But the winter rain combined with ocean breezes can make it feel cold.

  • When is the best time to fly to San Francisco?

    Peak Season: Flights to San Francisco are at their most expensive between June and August as this is the busiest time of the year. Be prepared for hotels near top sights such as the Golden Gate Bridge, Fisherman’s Wharf, North Beach, Haight-Ashbury and the colorful Chinatown area to be booked up early. You’ll find the waterfront more crowded as well, and restaurants a lot busier. There are also many festivals, street fairs and special events taking place during this time.
