Cheap flights from Chicago to San Francisco

San Francisco is sure to meet all of your needs for an unforgettable vacation or business trip, with its variety of things to see and do. Even though the city has a mass transit system, you'd be better off renting a car, allowing you to create your own schedule. At the San Francisco International Airport (SFO), renting a car is easy and efficient.

Key Facts

Coit Tower in the Telegraph Hill neighborhood of the city was built through a donation made by Lillie Coit in 1933. In the atrium of this building is a series of 27 murals depicting life in the 1930s. At the top of the tower, there are amazing views of the city and the bay. At Fisherman's Wharf, you’ll find a ferry that will carry you to Alcatraz Island to visit this infamous prison.

The tour covers its most notorious inmates: the Bird Man of Alcatraz and Prohibition Era gangster, Al Capone. This island also serves as a bird sanctuary with plenty of beautiful plant life, so carry binoculars if you brought them from home.

Hints and Tips

Travelers can expect flight times between O'Hare International Airport (ORD) in Chicago, and San Francisco to last up to four and a half hours in total.

*Price based on the lowest price found within past 24 hours and based upon one night stay for two adults over the next thirty days. Prices and availability subject to change. Additional terms may apply.
