Fly from New York to San Francisco

Flights from New York to San Francisco take travelers across the country to a large city with a West Coast feel. San Francisco is home to restaurants serving seafood caught every morning, a thriving cultural scene, and numerous historical sites. Find cheaper prices on flights and other travel arrangements through Orbitz.com.

New York, New York

New York is home to some of the greatest cultural attractions in the world, including an active theater district, museums, and historical monuments. The city is also home to John F. Kennedy International Airport, also known as JFK. Each of the eight terminals boasts different restaurants, including McDonald's, Auntie Anne's, Subway, Au Bon Pain, and KFC Express. There are also vending machines on-site if you don't have time to sit down.

Flights to San Francisco are available from JetBlue Airways, United Airlines, US Airways, American Airlines, Delta Air Lines, and Alaska Airlines. While these flights depart from JFK, you might find flights leaving nearby LaGuardia Airport or Newark Liberty International Airport. There are also some return flights that arrive at these two airports.

Ground transportation to JFK is available by bus, subway, AirTran, taxi, or your personal car. You can park in a long-term lot for $18 per day.

San Francisco, California

If the only things you visit during your trip to the West Coast city of San Francisco are the Golden Gate Bridge and Golden Gate Park, you might miss some great attractions. The various districts, or neighborhoods, that comprise the city offer different experiences, activities, and attractions, giving each visitor a unique view of the city.

Experience San Francisco

The San Francisco International Airport has an off-site rental car center, and a shuttle takes travelers from the airport to the center. Renting a car is not for everyone because the city has a number of large hills and the streets are sometimes narrow. The Bay Area Rapid Transit, SamTrans Public Bus Service, and Caltrain Commuter Rail let travelers reach destinations across the city without wasting a lot of money. Other transportation options include shared ride vans and taxis, which start at around $30.

Once you walk out of the airport, you will experience different types of weather depending on the season. September and October see temperatures above 70 degrees Fahrenheit, while winter temperatures can drop into the 50s. Spring and summer temperatures hit the low to high 60s, making it possible to spend more time outside.

The best way to see San Francisco is to avoid some of the more popular tourist spots. Instead of visiting the Golden Gate Bridge, stop by Lombard Street, made famous by the Steve McQueen movie Bullit. The Foreign Cinema shows foreign movies regularly, and it offers outdoor viewing in the summer. Browsing through the shops and dining at the restaurants in Union Square, grabbing breakfast at Dottie's True Blue Café, and stopping by the Noc Noc cocktail bar will let you see the city like a local.
