Nestled in San Francisco bay, the city connects the Pacific Ocean with Middle America and the steep hills and trams are a huge part of American media and culture.

Things to Do in San Francisco

Many of the iconic landmarks of San Francisco can be found in the centre of town. You can challenge your hire car by driving down the winding hairpins of Lombard Street, featured in Alfred Hitchcock’s film Vertigo. Alternatively, take one of the vintage trolley cars to the intricate Palace of Fine Arts. Originally built for the 1915 Panama-Pacific International Expo, this incredibly authentic gallery is pleasing on the outside and inside and puts on shows regularly. Whether you’re leaving or arriving in the city, take your hire car for a spin downtown and visit the Twin Peaks Park, with exquisite scenery and a terrific view of San Francisco.
