About San Francisco

San Francisco, CA Travel Tips

San Francisco, CA, is an iconic city that is often referred to as the "City by the Bay." It is a vibrant city that is rich in history and culture. Choosing the right accommodations is crucial when staying in San Francisco. A well-located home or apartment can place a family close to desired activities and provide them with the comforts of home. Rentals are growing in popularity when it comes to lodging options for families on vacation. Here at Vacation Home Rentals, we have one of the best online selections of apartments for rent in San Francisco. Our for-rent-by-owner properties meet high standards and are well-maintained. When traveling to San Francisco, there are a few tips that can help save you from frustration and make the family vacation a fun and safe one. When choosing from our San Francisco rentals, make certain that your choice has enough rooms for the entire family. 

Neighborhoods

San Francisco is a city that has many different neighborhoods and districts. Some of these neighborhoods are also busy tourist destinations. When looking for San Francisco apartments for rent, it is helpful to know which of these neighborhoods are desirable locations for families. Russian Hill is an example of a neighborhood that is appealing to tourists and is also an excellent residential area. It also has amazing city views and excellent shops and restaurants. The Marina is another desirable area to find rentals in San Francisco. There are plenty of good shops and restaurants in the area, which also provides great views. Nob Hill is another of the more well-known neighborhoods in San Francisco. It is a more expensive and high-end neighborhood with upscale shops and boutiques. Sunset is an ideal place to look for apartments for rent in San Francisco, as is South of Market, or SoMa. Both areas are quite family-friendly.

Attractions

While in San Francisco, there are endless attractions to see and there’s never a dull moment. In fact, there are so many attractions that it can be hard to narrow them down. Ideally, tourists will identify attractions and create an itinerary soon after choosing from our selection of San Francisco apartments for rent. Popular attractions in San Francisco include the Golden Gate Bridge and Pier 39 at Fisherman’s Wharf. The Exploratorium, San Francisco Zoo, the Aquarium of the Bay, and the Cartoon Art Museum are also family-friendly attractions. A trip to Golden Gate Park has enough to keep the family busy all day long. The park includes many attractions, such as the Koret Playground and Carousel, Golden Gate Aquarium, and the California Academy of Sciences.

Events

San Francisco is home to many events that can enhance one’s family vacation. From May to October, tourists staying in San Francisco vacation rentals can take in a performance at the Yerba Buena Gardens Festival. If your vacation extends to August, the San Francisco Shakespeare Festival can be a lot of fun for everyone. September is for chocolate-lovers, as the Ghiradelli Square Chocolate Festival takes place every year. November and December are two of the most eventful times for tourists to visit the city and stay in vacation rentals. San Francisco is home to many holiday events, including two tree-lighting ceremonies, one in Union Square and the other in Ghirardelli Square. From November to December, tourists will enjoy the Great Dickens Christmas Fair and the Holiday Festival of Lights.

Food

You certainly won't go hungry in San Francisco as there's a restaurant for every 376 people, the highest density in the US. Being the "bay area" the city has endless seafood options that are worth your time and money. Aromas tackle your taste buds at the Ferry Building Farmer's Market as cheeses, breads, "salty pig parts" homemade delicacies, and sensory-perfect vegetables and fruits attract rabid tourists. The entire city is a farm-to-table frenzy as chefs have their pick of fresh ingredients daily. Today the most interesting kitchens are using these ingredients in regional cuisines, like Korean, Japanese, Italian, or South American. But the playground isn't just in haute cuisine kitchens. Culinary hot spots are just as likely to be a burger, pizza, or barbecue joint. Of course, San Francisco is next to Sonoma, the wine capital of the US, so be sure to pair all of your meals with a fruity red or delicious white vintage.

Transit

Transportation is another important consideration. San Francisco has an impressive transit system that can reduce the need for a car rental. When planning your trip, studying the transit schedule can help in determining what your family’s transportation needs will be. he Bay Area does not have an integrated transit system, and most visitors will use services operated by more than one agency during their visit. Trip planning is available online anytime, and visitors can call 511 from any phone in the Bay Area and receive trip planning and other transit information. Within San Francisco, visitors can call 311 at any time from any phone and speak with a live operator for information on Muni and other City services. San Francisco offers an excellent public transportation system. BART makes airport transfers quick and inexpensive. SFMTA, the municipal railway, operates cable cars, streetcars and buses that make the whole city accessible without the expense of renting or parking a car. For extensive information on San Francisco Public Transportation, click here.

Shopping

Any shopping trip in San Fran starts at the Ferry Building Marketplace and Farmer's Market. Street vendors and local eateries feature gifts and foods of all kinds. The bustling area sees more visitors per day than the Golden Gate Bridge. For the well-read, you must visit the City Lights Bookseller store with all sorts of contemporaries and classics available for sale. In Ghiardelli Square you can treat yourself to delicious chocolates, while Union Square has hours worth of shopping opportunities at chain and local stores alike. You can also relax and soak up the sun. The Westfield San Francisco Centre is a classic downtown shopping mall, and the famous Chinatown has objects from the Far East that will both shock and awe.

Climate

Since it is surrounded on three sides by water, San Francisco's weather is strongly influenced by the cool currents of the Pacific Ocean, which moderate temperature swings and produce a remarkably mild year-round climate with little seasonal temperature variation. Fog is a regular feature of San Francisco summers. June is San Francisco's driest month. It's also the month that gets the least sun, with lots of fog that keep things chilly. Some years, foggy, overcast conditions last longer than a month. San Francisco has the coldest average temperatures of any major U.S. city in June, July, and August. San Francisco is at its best in spring and fall, when skies are clearer and rain less likely. No matter what it's like during the day, San Francisco weather is almost always cool in the evening, especially near the ocean.

So if you're considering a trip to San Francisco soon, please consider booking an apartment rental instead of a hotel for cost savings, more privacy, and better amenities. You'll find plenty of options on vacationhomerentals.com
