Heading to San Francisco for three nights in October this year with myself, my husband and another couple.
Given the price of accommodation, I am thinking of booking an apartment via airbnb and booking a car for our stay.
Given we are there for such a short space of time, we are really pushed for the things we want to do.
1. Visit all the hot spots, union square, fisherman's wharf, golden gate bridge etc
2. do a tour of alcatraz
3. We would love to do a tour of yosemite, but can't really justify the 10-12 hours required that most tour agents are suggesting.
I am thinking of renting a car, given that gives us the flexibility to do yosemite for a short visit, as opposed to a full day one.
I am aware public transport is quite affordable, but not sure if it's worth getting a car so we have more flexibility and are not too stretched for time.
Any advice is appreciated.
