More About
South San Francisco, CA

About South San FranciscoIf you’re a visitor, you might not even realize you’re in South San Francisco; this bedroom community spreads out just south of the San Francisco city limits. It’s also the location of busy San Francisco International Airport. Whether you’re arriving or departing, arrange your schedule so you have a little extra time to peruse the exhibits at the SFO Museum (SFOM), in the International Terminal’s Main Hall (pre-security) and designed to resemble SFO’s 1930s-era passenger lobby. Permanent and rotating exhibits focus on commercial aviation history. Most gallery sites are located before security checkpoints, so you can visit them without a boarding pass. The airport also has a very cool collection of public art; most pieces are in Terminal 2 and the International Terminal.

The Bay Area abounds in outdoor recreational opportunities, and one of them is San Bruno Mountain State Park. Within the park is the northernmost reach of the Santa Cruz range. Hiking trails traverse hilly slopes, offering outstanding views of San Francisco and San Francisco Bay. From US 101, take the Bayshore Boulevard/Brisbane exit to Guadalupe Canyon Parkway, then continue west on the parkway to the park entrance.
