You can pack a whole lot into a few days in San Francisco but consider catching an early flight into San Francisco International Airport to really make the most of your time. Grab a taxi, ride-share or the BART (Bay Area Rapid Transit) and head to your hotel.
Transportation: Most of San Francisco’s sights are within walking distance, but you can use the world-famous cable cars to avoid the steep uphill climbs. Beware—at peak hours, the cable cars can have long lines.
Where to stay: Pismo Beach has a great selection of hotels you can book as part of your California package deal, perfect for an overnight stay. Enjoy sea views and salty breezes at hotels like Shore Cliff Hotel and Sandcastle Hotel On the Beach.
Transportation: Rent a car in San Francisco as part of a package deal and drop it off in Los Angeles, your next stop.
Today you may want to skip breakfast and wait for brunch at your first stop, Santa Barbara, which is just 90 minutes’ drive south of Pismo.
Where to stay: You’ll be booking a place in your next destination: LA (just a 30-minute drive from Malibu). Choose a place to stay like the InterContinental Downtown Los Angeles and you’ll have access to a rooftop pool, or choose a budget-friendly option such as the spacious Ellison Suites with its Venice Beach views.
In the evening, you can fly home from Los Angeles or stay another night to extend your epic California vacation.
