    The perfect city to work on toning your glutes

    Situated in Northern California's Bay Area, San Francisco is as famous for its arts, culture, and dining scene as it is for its iconic bridge. Don't forget that it's also an entry point to wine country. You'll find yourself getting a major workout on the city's famous hills, but no worries—the city's quintessential vintage streetcars aren't just for show. If you set yourself up in a San Francisco vacation rental at the top of a hill, you can soak up sprawling views of the city below and watch the setting sun turn everything truly golden.

    Excitement night and day in the City by the Bay

    San Fran is best enjoyed from all angles, so plan for a walking or bike tour, a helicopter ride, or a boat trip around the Bay. Picnic in Golden Gate Park, or grab tickets to a show in the city's Theater District. Enjoy one of many festivals, from the Haight Ashbury Street Fair to the San Francisco Jazz Festival, plus one of the largest LGBT Pride Parades in the world. Choosing a neighborhood for your San Francisco vacation rental may be your toughest choice, thanks to diverse offerings in every part of this stunning city.

    Arts and culture for all ages and interests

    San Francisco's eclectic arts scene can't be missed, so don't skip the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art or the Legion of Honor art museum. The whole family will love the Walt Disney Family Museum, while local history lovers will be happy at the Beat Museum and the Cable Car Museum. Take the kids to the Aquarium by the Bay, or tour the harbor with a visit to Alcatraz. Visit the San Francisco Botanical Garden, or take a little trip out of the city to visit the redwoods at Muir Woods National Monument.

    Fall for San Francisco when you visit in autumn

    The best time to visit San Francisco is most definitely in the fall, when the you'll find some of the city's warmest temperatures and smallest crowds, from September through November. Spring is also fairly temperate and dry, while summer tends to be foggy, as well as cooler and wetter than the large crowds might think. Winter is appealing for its low prices, but be warned: you'll need plenty of extra layers when you pack for your San Francisco vacation rental, as the weather tends to be cold and gray from December through February.

    Don't be worried if you feel the earth move under your feet

    Situated on one of Northern California's peninsulas, San Francisco is surrounded by the Pacific Ocean, the Golden Gate strait, and the San Francisco Bay. With over 40 hills, the weather can change dramatically between neighborhoods, while also offering views across the bay. Several islands surround the peninsula and are a part of the city, including Alcatraz, which is probably the most famous. Two nearby fault lines, the San Andreas and Hayward Faults, are both responsible for regular, minor earthquakes, and the city's infrastructure planning is steeped in earthquake preparation.
