You will feel like a resident of SF when following the scenic 49 mile drive signs. It is a great way to get an overlook view of the whole city. Then plan your mini trips to SO many interesting places in San Francisco.

Psst! Hey! Want to get lost? Discover dead ends and futility? Try this Drive! Local will tell you it is a hoax- who knows what the Chamber of Commerce will say ... they've never tried this Herculean Task. Talk to your concierge.

Not with the trailer though. In SF 49 miles route everywhere are beautiful but Parking could be the Big problem. Why not stay in San Francisco then took different daytrips to enjoy all local attractions. Good luck!
