Content: If you’re deciding where to stay in the city, this is my number one recommendation for Hotels. I recommend this hotel for all friends and family that I know coming into the city because it is a boutique hotel, centrally located, with an on-site restaurant and bar, and overall has great value for money. I think hotels in San Francisco are generally more expensive just given that we’re in California, so this is one of the best options for a luxury experience at regular prices

San Francisco International Airport

San Francisco, San Francisco International Airport

Content: Taking an Uber to the airport is the best way to get to SFO. You can also order a taxi in advance for a flat rate of $35 from anywhere in the city to SFO, but you have to book it in advance online I hope you’re able to enjoy San Francisco and all it’s glory because there are so many different things to do for everyone! 🌁 TIPS FOR VISITING SAN FRANCISCO ❤️ Make sure to always bring a jacket wherever you go, the fog usually rolls in at 5 or 6 PM and it can get really cold ❤️  sadly this is a city with the highest homeless population in the country so just be aware of your surroundings. They are usually harmless but people are generally pretty shocked when they first visit ❤️ you don’t need a car to get around, you can usually just Uber, walk, or take the bus to all of the different places ❤️ SFO is the main airport to fly into but sometimes people also fly into OAK, which is just right across the bridge. Depending on where you’re coming from, flights might be cheaper so always check there too
