I am going to be in San Francisco for a conference at the end of October. My Husband is joining me and we are staying an extra day after the conference, and thinking about renting a car for the day to take a day trip outside of the city.
Muir Woods sounds really interesting. Is this a full day, or a half day trip? What trails would you recommend inside the park? Any other sights/ things we should do close to Muir Woods while we have a car for the day?
Alternatively, Sausalito sounds interesting, and it sounds like you don't need a car to get there, you can just take the ferry and walk around. Is this correct? Is Sausalito something we could do in an afternoon or evening for a few hours after I get out of the conference, or is it more of an all day trip?
Any other suggestions or tips for what to do on our "free" day would be much appreciated.
Also, we are staying at the Fairmont San Francisco, are there places close by to the hotel we could rent a car just for the day, any tips for the car rental would be great as well.
