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.
