Got another quick question I am hoping you can all help with.
We have booked 3 nights of digs in San Fran now and I am now trying to sort a hire car. Is there any point to having a hire car in San Fran or will it just be a nightmare trying to get it parked? Might be worth just booking the car to pick up on our last day in San Fran then drop off in Vegas at the end.
we did a 3 day trip there in 2000 and hired a car, there are things to do such as the 49 mile drive where you play a CD in the car and it guides you to various points of interest, Golden Gate etc, your hotel should have a valet service and parking. Its relatively cheap and if you do decide to go for it ask for an upgrade to a sportscar, we paid an extra $90 for the 3 days and got upgraded to a Chrysler V6 convertible - was fun driving around.
Its a hell of a drive to Vegas like.
