Downtown Pittsburg lies about 20 miles east of Pittsburgh International Airport (PIT). While rental cars, taxis and shuttles are an option, many travelers choose to take the Port Authority’s West Busway that reaches locations like downtown Pittsburg, Oakland and the University of Pittsburg.
Flight duration from PIT to San Francisco International Airport (SFO) is around five hours. From here, you have the option to take the SamTrans public bus to San Francisco and surrounding areas along with the BART rapid rail for destinations in the northern part of San Mateo County.
One of the most iconic landmarks in San Francisco is The Golden Gate Bridge. You can ride across in a car or taxi or you can use the pedestrian walkway on either side, which allows you to get great photos of San Francisco.
All sorts of tour boats head into San Francisco Bay, and tours to Alcatraz Island are always interesting. The island has a surrounding fortification and within its confines, a lighthouse and the infamous abandoned federal prison.
Seasonal variations in temperature are uncommon in San Francisco. Expect the area to be slightly cooler than the surrounding areas because of its location near the water. Don’t be surprised to see a considerable amount of fog, another important part of the San Francisco experience.
