Trading Austin for San Francisco, even for just a few days, can bring a welcome change of scenery for any visitor. San Francisco International Airport (SFO) is the main airport for the entire Bay Area. With so much to see and do in such a compact area, San Francisco rightly earns its place as one of the most popular destinations in the United States. The city's iconic images, including the Golden Gate Bridge and wonderfully crooked Lombard Street, both are instantly recognizable to most travelers.
San Francisco International Airport (SFO) is located south of San Francisco, off the 101 freeway. Interstate 280 is nearby as well. The neighboring areas of San Jose and Oakland are a little over 30 minutes away by car and worth visiting. San Francisco has a rich cultural history and scores of attractions to explore.
Visitors should be aware that walking can be quite challenging in certain very hilly neighborhoods. There is a comprehensive mass transit system that is best used in the busier areas, such as Chinatown. However, to explore outer areas or cities, a rental car is a good option, which will allow you to travel at your own pace.
A flight from Austin International Airport (AUS) to San Francisco International Airport (SFO) takes about three hours and 45 minutes.
