Less brash than Los Angeles, San Francisco is a sophisticated city known for its multi-cultural mix, markets and its stunning bay.
San Francisco car hire, from the time you arrive and pick up your vehicle at San Francisco Airport (SFO), gives you the freedom to explore. Take a trip to the historical Fisherman's Wharf and Pier 39, a food lover's haven with vibrant nightlife, entertainment, world-class restaurants and shops. From here you can take a boat tour to the former prison island of Alcatraz.
Enjoy the parks of San Francisco, the Golden Gate Bridge, Crissy Field, Presidio, Land's End and Mission Dolores or visit Japantown or the bigger Chinatown, a tourist attraction since the 1860s. See the views from the 210-foot Coit Tower on Telegraph Hill, a skyline landmark since its completion in 1933 and a memorial to the San Franciscan eccentric Lillian Coit.
Ride on the national historic landmark that is the cable-car system, visit the Museum of Modern Art or just enjoy the laid-back nightlife, the jazz and the diverse range of great bars and eateries in the city. You can also visit one of San Francisco's many micro-breweries or the political bookshops and cafes that thrive in the Castro.
