Hit the road

You could spend days exploring The City’s tourist attractions like Fisherman’s Wharf, Union Square, and Lombard Street, but the city is perfectly located to escape town and enjoy the dramatic natural wonders of northern California. There are copious convenient day trip and road trip locations just outside the bay.

Book the perfect car
Find low rates on Turo and skip the city traffic

Point Reyes & Tomales Bay

Head an hour and a half north along the coast through Marin County to hike around the preserve, watch the waves crash, and explore the historic lighthouse, and maybe see some elk!

Wine Country

Why choose between Napa Valley, Sonoma, or Russian River Valley? You can book a car on Turo and make a pit stop at every vineyard, gallery, and artisan grocery that catches your eye.

Yosemite National Park

The grandeur of the giant granite cliffs, dramatic high country, and gushing waterfalls of Yosemite Valley is unmatched. Book a San Francisco car rental alternative on Turo for an unforgettable road trip into the Sierras.

Best San Francisco driving roads

Purple squiggle

Skyline Boulevard

For a scenic trip between towering trees and sparkling ocean views, take your San Francisco car rental alternative south along the ridge towards the Santa Cruz Mountains, and stop at the famous Alice’s Restaurant for a bite.

Panoramic Highway

Snaking north of the city up over Muir Woods and then down to Stinson Beach, this short, but deliciously sweet, drive winds through Marin with unforgettable views, and thrilling switchbacks.

Highway 1 to Big Sur

All of the PCH is breathtaking, serving up sleepy beach towns that are perfect for a quick bite, antique shopping, and hypnotizing ocean views, but the twisty stretch to Big Sur is a true driver’s delight.
