Before going for a vacation to San Francisco just know the climatic conditions. The weather in San Francisco is often foggy, temperature is over 80 F, and water is too cold. April and October are considered the best two months for vacation. If you're planning for a vacation to San Francisco better carry warm clothes. Before visiting the place, just look at a few maps and know about the city, and know how you can move from one place to another.
Spare time if you want to visit Alcatraz as it is a popular vacation destination .Since San Francisco is a popular vacation destination, reserve hotel in advance. This is a very busy city. San Francisco is small, and all the tourist sights are close together. Try to stay in a hotel in areas like union square or Fisherman's Wharf so that it would be convenient for you to use public transportation and visit other places. Try using public transportation instead of renting a car. If you're thinking of driving in the city you will go mad. So just try to avoid it. Buy City passes online. City passes will contain entrance passes for many attractions, at a significant discount. While you are planning for a trip to San Francisco carry a camera and lots of film or digital media. If your vacation is in winter, carry an umbrella and rain coat. Bring comfortable shoes with you. If you're having your vacations in mid-summer carry warm clothes like jacket, windbreaker or even two or three sweatshirts.
Stay in some of the convenient areas like union square and Fisherman's Wharf. Invest some time in finding out the best hotels at excellent rates. You can get tickets at discounted rates. Buy Go San Francisco Card which offers discounts for more attractions at San Francisco. When you are planning for a trip just give some time to find out where you want to stay. Don't stay outside the city because of lower hotel prices. Due to heavy traffic in the city you will not be able to find a parking place once you get in town, and even if you save a few dollars, you'll loose your temper. Street parking is not possible in some area and hotels charge somewhere near to $20 to $50 a day for parking. Instead of spending money for parking, try to find a convenient hotel within the city.
