Car Hire South San Francisco
San Francisco Car Rental Tips
The City and County of San Francisco is the main city in the San Francisco Bay Area, a region which also comprises San Jose and Oakland.
San Francisco is well known for several iconic features including its steep rolling hills and adorning trams, its mix of modern, Art Deco and colonial architecture, and sights like the Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz and Chinatown.
The city is bordered by parks and beaches that comprise the Golden Gate National Recreation Area and a popular destination for people interested in sun-bathing, marine wildlife and surfing.
Public transport in San Francisco is unusually common for an American city. However many of the tourist destinations are only served by road and private vehicles, so people tend to hire a car in San Francisco if they want to visit a range of places.
To get to the Golden Gate Bridge and the North Bay, take U.S. Route 101 heading northbound from the city.
Interstate 80 connects San Francisco peninsula with the East Bay and then heads towards Silicon Valley as U.S. Route 101.
