I really liked this area as we chose to come to SF from Burlingame on a daily basis, in order to park near the piers, however expensive the parking there can be (we paid 45 dollars one day!!!! for the whole day). The area is...More

historic and contemporary architecture, including the
iconic Transamerica Pyramid. After business hours,

We didn't find it necessary to have a rental car in the city. Taxis are very inexpensive and lots of public transport options. With cable cars it can be a bit tricky driving if you're not used to it. We hired a car for trips... More
