Plan a stop at Westin St Francis Hotel Glass Elevators. It's one sight you'll usually find on travelers' to-do lists. Union Square and San Francisco Magic Parlor are also close by and worth taking the time to see.
Grab your bucket list, because it's about to get a little longer. Once you've marked off the best sights in San Francisco, there's an iconic attraction not too far away.

If you've never been to San Francisco, get set for a good time. With icons like University of California San Francisco and San Francisco State University, you'll be wondering why you didn't book your escape sooner. But like all major metropolises, getting behind the wheel can be a challenge — so why not choose a compact car or a mini? Parking is a piece of cake and handling is about as easy as it gets. Alternatively, if you plan to avoid the downtown area and marvel at the farther-flung sandy shores in San Mateo County, nothing beats a four-wheel drive or an SUV.
There's loads of choice when it comes to renting a car in San Francisco. From luxury models to agile compacts, you'll find it all here. Choosing your perfect match depends on how much you'd like to spend and what activities you plan on doing. There are some road trips that are just begging you to splurge on your dream ride, whereas other adventures don't need much more than an engine and four wheels.
