More inland, Interstate 5 South and Interstate 80 West meet in Sacramento; from there, follow I-80 West until you cross the Bay Bridge (toll bridge), which goes directly into San Francisco.

Within the Bay Area, Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) lines go directly to several stops in downtown San Francisco.

San Francisco's climate is mild—the temperature rarely goes above 80° or below 40°. Be advised, though, that the city's weather is extremely variable—from season to season, hour to hour, and neighborhood to neighborhood. Winter days can be warm, summer days can be frigid and vise versa. Be prepared. Wear sheddable layers—sweaters and warm scarves are just the ticket.
