10 Amazing Reasons To Visit San Francisco This Year

Super Cheap Car Rental is known as the go-to place for underage car rental Los Angeles deals. But we also have a location near the San Francisco International Airport, and we happen to be crazy about the City by the Bay.

If you’ve been considering paying the foggy city a visit, make this the year you book a vacation. We’ll be able to help you with your San Francisco cheap car rental needs—and remember, we specialize in underage car rental San Francisco specials, so if you’re under 25, you won’t have to worry about paying extra or proving yourself to us.

Here are 10 perfect reasons to make San Francisco your next vacation destination:

  1. The culture is awesome.

While San Francisco certainly has its own unique culture, it’s the fact that it’s a cultural melting pot that makes it so wonderful. A rich and diverse history has led to a city full of delicious ethnic eateries, one-of-a-kind shops and beautiful places of worship. There’s no other city like it in America.

  1. The tourist attractions are absolutely delightful.

San Francisco takes tourism seriously. From boating out to Alcatraz Island to tour the old prison to the charming and historic Fisherman’s Wharf, you’ll be delighted by all there is to see and do here. Don’t miss The Exploratorium, a huge public learning laboratory with hundreds of science and art-related exhibits.

  1. The city has welcomed some delicious new restaurants in 2017.

The restaurant scene in San Francisco consists of some classic old school eateries as well as hundreds of up-and-coming dining spots. There’s truly something for every taste here. Petit Marlowe (Soma), RT Rotisserie (Hayes Valley), and El Sur (Potrero Hill) are just a few of the top-rated restaurants that opened in SF this summer.

  1. Love the theater? There are some amazing shows happening this fall and winter.

Like most major cities, SF has a great lineup of Broadway performances and other plays on the horizon. An American in Paris will be at the Orpheum Theatre September 12 – October 8, followed by Disney’s Aladdin. And while scoring tickets to The Book of Mormon is still no easy task, the show will be in the city next February 6 – March 4.

  1. The nightlife in San Francisco continues to heat up.

There’s never a bad time to visit the City by the Bay, but this year has been especially amazing for the bar scene. The new hotel across from AT&T Park, Hotel VIA, has two incredible new bars, including a gorgeous rooftop bar, Rooftop at VIA. Another new rooftop gem, Spirits in the Sky at Loews Regency, has some of the most breathtaking views of the city you’ll find anywhere. There are also plenty of new neighborhood gems for those who prefer a more casual ambiance.

  1. If you’re a nature lover, you may be surprised by how many parks and natural areas you’ll find in SF.

Golden Gate National Recreation Area is the largest urban national park in the world. Presidio National Park has about 1,500 acres of hiking and biking trail, not to mention the stunning beaches. And there are also some beautiful neighborhood gems, like Mount Sutro Forest, a historic urban oasis.

  1. The weather is actually pretty great.

While it’s true that you won’t find many of the scorching summer days you will in Los Angeles, most people who call San Francisco home love the mild climate. Despite the rumors that it’s always foggy, we do see plenty of sunny days here—and by the time the weather cools off for the season, most people are ready for the mellow temperatures.

  1. Expand your fall shopping options and pack an extra suitcase when you visit.

Not only does San Francisco have all the department stores and well-known companies you could possibly imagine, especially in Union Square, you’ll also find more local boutiques, shops and gift stores than you can ever count. And they are in every neighborhood. San Francisco is a shopper’s paradise, and with fall fashion just around the corner, this is the perfect time to visit.

  1. There are some seriously enticing local festivals happening this fall.

There’s truly something for everyone in San Francisco, and that includes plenty of free and affordable festivals. September 9 and 10 are the dates for the delicious Ghirardelli Chocolate Festival, while Chinatown has a mid-Autumn Moon Festival On September 30 and October 1. The Bay Area Blues Festival is September 23 and 24, and for the daring, the Folsom Street Fair is September 24, and it’s full of leather and fetish wear.

  1. San Francisco is close to some wonderful local attractions.

Part of the beauty of renting a vehicle from Super Cheap Car Rental is that you’ll have the ability to explore the attractions outside of the city. While public transportation can get you around the heart of the city with ease, having a rental car will allow you a lot more freedom to move. The charming beach city of Santa Cruz, the heart of wine country (Napa and Sonoma) and Monterey, just to name a few, are all reasonably short distances away. Instead of sticking to San Francisco entirely, you can see a great deal of Northern California on your trip.

We hope we have convinced you to make San Francisco your next vacation destination. Safe travels!
