Cheap flights from New York to San Francisco

When leaving John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) for San Francisco International Airport (SFO), you can expect to arrive in a spacious and well-planned airport terminal. Bring a light sweater, because San Francisco is a bit mistier and colder than other Californian cities. Visitors will love riding the cable cars up and down the hills to Fisherman's Wharf, where you can see Alcatraz Island and the Golden Gate Bridge, while the sea lions play on Pier 39.

Key Facts

The San Francisco Giants, recent World Series Champions, play at AT&T Park. For much less money at the Oakland Coliseum, you can see the other Bay Area favorite baseball team, the Oakland Athletics.

Napa Valley is also about an hour's drive from San Francisco, where you can sip signature red wines such as Zinfandel, as well as touring the vineyards of world-renown viticulturists, Frog’s Leap is a winery to watch out for.

Hints and Tips

Flights from JFK to SFO are typically five to six hours long. At SFO, you can connect to rental car agencies from any terminal via the AirTrain. From there, the historic Redwood Highway, Route 101, will take you to San Francisco in about twenty minutes, but if you drive north of the city you can find Muir Woods, home of the giant redwood trees. In the opposite direction, you can drive to Silicon Valley, San Jose or Palo Alto.
