If you’re heading to California for the weekend, San Francisco is the perfect destination. You can pack a whole lot into 2 days in this city but consider catching an early flight into San Francisco International Airport to really make the most of your time.
Transportation: For your first day in SF you can get around easily by public transportation, but we recommend having a rental car for your trip out of the city on day 2. Pick up your rental car at the airport, and you can feel good about saving big by bundling your flight, hotel and car rental through our California package deals.
Where to stay: San Francisco has an array of great places to stay, including the Hotel Zeppelin San Francisco, known for its artsy, ultra-modern décor and proximity to the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art and Union Square. Alternatively, there’s the Agronaut Hotel, where the chic nautical theme goes nicely with the bay views.
The best thing about quick getaways in California is the chance to explore both city and nature. So today is the day to expand the scope of your California vacation and get out of bustling SF to explore some of the natural wonders not too far from the city.
Before your flight home, consider stopping at the city of Half Moon Bay (93 miles north of Carmel). Have a drink or early dinner with views of the sunset at The Ritz-Carlton, set on a bluff overlooking the ocean. From here it’s just a 30-minute drive to the San Francisco International Airport. If you are getting an early morning flight home, stay overnight at The Ritz for a luxurious end to your weekend trip in California.
Visit this state of many contrasts: mountains to oceans, fertile agricultural areas to modern cities and tall forests to deserts.
The mid-1800s California gold rush brought many adventurers to the Pacific Ocean shores. Their descendants have established fascinating cities and structures in the midst of amazing natural beauty.
Visit Sacramento to see the art and architecture of the state capital. The California State Railroad Museum tells the important story of building the railroads that enabled development of the California region.
In the Sierra Nevada Mountains, visit Sequoia National Forest. See giant redwood trees, up to 300 feet (91 meters) tall and over 33 feet (10 meters) in diameter, hundreds or thousands of years old. Enjoy the spectacular landscape of granite monoliths, limestone caves and whitewater streams.
The mountains offer a range of choices for outdoor activities. Visit the Lake Tahoe area to hike, boat, fish and swim in the chilly aquamarine waters in the summer. In winter ski at Squaw, site of the 1960 Olympics, Northstar, Alpine Meadows and others, with excellent skiing and views over the lake. See sparkling granite cliffs and majestic waterfalls in Yosemite National Park.
Take a wine tour in Napa or Sonoma. Stop in the fertile agricultural area of the Central Valley to sample strawberries, olives, garlic and much of the nation’s fresh produce.
Like Tony Bennett, you might leave your heart in San Francisco. The views of the Golden Gate Bridge are unforgettable. Visit Chinatown, ride the trolley, climb the hills of the city, ferry to the former prison of Alcatraz and enjoy the exciting nightlife.
Moving south to Los Angeles, enjoy the many beaches on the Pacific Ocean. Watch seals, surfers and skaters. Go to Hollywood to see celebrities’ stars embedded in the sidewalk. Tour Universal Studios. Visit the original Disneyland® Resort in Anaheim, the La Brea Tarpits and the J. Paul Getty Museum.
Farther south, see even more California beaches in San Diego, along with the USS Midway Museum, a retired aircraft carrier. Visit Palms Springs for desert heat and world-famous golf. Cross the border to Tijuana for a Mexican holiday.
