Vancouver

Vancouver has the highest population of any city in western Canada, and the city is filled with Edwardian architecture, vibrant nightlife, cultural attractions, and a busy downtown center. The Vancouver metropolitan area is served by regular domestic and international flights out of Vancouver International Airport.

Vancouver International Airport is located about 7 miles south of downtown Vancouver, and is easily reached by taxi or public transportation. If you drive your own vehicle to the airport, you can park directly across from the airport terminals. Parking costs $8.50 per hour or $30 per day for self-serve parking, and there is an additional charge if you need a cashier. Vancouver International Airport is also served by the Canada Line rapid transit rail, which takes about 26 minutes to reach the airport from downtown.

Nonstop flights are available to San Francisco aboard United Airlines, Air Canada, or WestJet. Other airlines such as Alaska Airlines and American Airlines offer flights with at least one stop between Vancouver and San Francisco. You can search for the flight that best fits your schedule on Orbitz.com.

While you are waiting for your flight to begin boarding, you can grab a snack or light meal at one of the many restaurants in the airport's international terminal. Choose from coffee bars like Starbucks or Tim Hortons, fast food locations such as Subway and Burger King, or other restaurants.

San Francisco

San Francisco is well-known for its interesting mix of architecture, active street cable cars, and steep hills. The City by the Bay is recognized as a center of liberal activism, due largely to the gay rights movement, and it is a leading financial center in California.

Experience San Francisco

Travelers flying into the San Francisco Bay area will arrive at the San Francisco International Airport, which is located less than 15 miles south of downtown San Francisco. You can get from the airport to downtown by using the airport's on-site taxi service or Bay Area Rapid Transit System, or you can rent a car to quickly reach your final destination. It takes approximately 20 minutes to drive to downtown San Francisco from the airport.

Temperatures in San Francisco remain fairly steady throughout the year, with highs ranging from the high 50s to low 70s all year long. These steady temperatures are largely due to San Francisco's location on the bay. The summers are dry with precipitation averages of less than an inch each month between May and September, making summer a perfect time to visit.

No cityscape picture of San Francisco is complete without the Golden Gate Bridge, which spans the San Francisco Bay along Route 101. The formidable island prison Alcatraz is located just north of the city, and San Francisco also has many museums including the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, Palace of the Legion of Honor, and the de Young Museum.
