View Full Version : Las vegas to San Francisco

10-15-2010, 12:12 PM
We are flying into Las Vegas for a 50th birthday vacation. We would like to drive to San Francisco. We have 6 nights before we have to fly home. How much time do we need to see San Francisco? I know we won't be able to see everything. I was thinking 3 nights in San Fran and three days doing a scenic drive. Where is Hearst castle? We will be taking this trip in July 2011.

Hello and welcome to the RTA forums !

How much time do we need to see San Francisco

How long is a piece of string ? It's not really an answerable question, but you can get a good overview of the City in 2 or 3 day's.

Hearst castle is located near to San Simeon on the coastal route 1 South of San Francisco.

Where are you flying out from ?

If you are flying out from San Fran, then you would be better off heading to the coast from Vegas to Cambria/San Simeon and then drive the coast Rd around Big Sur to Monterey, where you could spend another day and then to San Fran. Parking can be expensive in SF and with the City being quite compact it would be worth considering dropping your car off on arrival [or after booking into hotel] and save on rental fee's.
