Destination guide

Due South, that's the way I'm goin'...

Let's get this straight right from the start. South San Francisco isn't the southern part of San Francisco. In fact, they're not even connected together. South San Francisco is a distinct city all of its own, and what's more, a South San Francisco vacation rental is the best discovery you're going to make this year. You're 15 minutes from Downtown San Francisco, yet the vibe is gentle and suburban, and those hard-earned bucks go a whole lot further. Not only that, but you're ideally located for the airport, the state reservations, and the beaches too. What's not to love?

Things to do

Are you Eastwood, Connery or Jackman?

Any South San Francisco vacation rental is going to be focused around excursions. And right at the top of that list is going to be... wait, which one to pick? The Golden Gate Bridge and Park are totally iconic, but so is Alcatraz, and which movie you try and reenact when you get there will probably be a pretty good indicator of what generation you belong to. After that, you've got any number of museums, theaters, and galleries, with the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (SFMOMA) being among the most popular.


Time to get industrious about that San Francisco vacation

There's one way above all others that you know you're in "South City," as the locals call it. It's the massive white hillside sign proclaiming "South San Francisco the industrial city." These days South City is all about good food (especially Mexican and Italian), shopping, and being in the best-connected city in the area. Many vacationers will focus on San Francisco to the north, but head west and you'll find yourself among sprawling recreation areas and awesome beaches, with whale watching at Gray Whale Cove. Just keep those binoculars trained out to sea and not on the unofficial "clothing optional" beach.


That mischievous old Pacific Ocean

The Bay Area is a sweet place to be at any time of year, and a South San Francisco vacation rental is no exception. It'll set you up with the warm, dry summers of California dreams, and while the winters can be a bit cooler and wetter, it's all relative if you've come from pretty much anywhere else. One thing to remember is you're down by the Pacific, which likes to mess with the weather just a little. You can thank it for the breeze that keeps you cool in the summers, but also for that unwelcome summer fog that sometimes creeps in.

Natural features

It's a whale of a vacation in South San Francisco

South San Francisco is on the San Francisco Peninsula, in the San Francisco Bay Area. To the east is the bay itself, while over to the west is the long, thin city of Pacifica, and the Pacific coast, beloved of surfers, sun-worshippers, and whale-watchers. A lot of the west part of the peninsula is covered with state recreation areas in the hilly country. Birdlife and marine life abound round here. There are seals, porpoises, and dolphins about, but of course the biggest hitters are the whales. The humpbacks are the stars of the show, and sometimes they even find their way into the bay.
