When you’re ready to begin your San Francisco, California, vacation, book a flight directly into the city by landing at the San Francisco International Airport (SFO).
As the largest airport in the Bay Area and the second busiest airport in California, SFO is a major hub of travel. It’s also close to the popular sites of town, making it an excellent choice for your arrival.
If you don’t mind lingering in the airport itself for a bit, there are a number of art galleries throughout the terminals. As an international centre, the airport has made strides to show off some of the best local art around. After picking up your suitcase in baggage claim, you can hit up Tanforan Mall, which is just outside the runway. Whether you forgot to pack your scarf or are looking for a new outfit for your trip, this is the place to go to find the perfect pick-me-up. Located only 20 km south of downtown, you can choose to stay in a San Francisco Airport hotel your first night to relax and freshen up, or you can easily use it as your home base during your trip. You’re always just a BART ride away from the top attractions in town, like Pier 39, Chinatown, and the Japanese Tea Garden.
When you’re ready to see all that the City by the Bay has to offer, make your way through SFO.
