    Not the most car friendly city but a lot of garages downtown. The Embarcadero building lots, the Masonic Auditorium lot and Sutter and Stockton lot are best. In the neighborhoods there are lots but you are often screwed - very limited street parking in residential and local shopping districts esp on the weekends, and most have a two hour limit when you do find a place on the street during the day. The City is small - consider parking in one of the above garages and take cabs or public transportation if you have a lot of tourist type stops to make. almost 7 years ago

    The city of San Francisco has smart parking spaces. If you have smartphones like the iPhone, use free SFpark app that will help you find available parking space nearby. over 6 years ago

    No!! Depending on where you're coming from, parking is expensive and hard to find. It's much easier to either park downtown and take muni and Bart, or leave your car in Oakland where Bart parking is $1 a day, and then take Bart in. over 6 years ago

    It's usually hellish downtown unless you are willing to pay for parking. Other hoods aren't that bad-typical city hunting for spots kind of thing, but not insurmountable. Where are you staying? I would leave the car at your hotel car park and walk or bus it everywhere. One other thing to consider is leaving it parked in a quieter neighborhood that only does street cleaning once a week (such as Haight/panhandle area, or SOMA). over 6 years ago

    Try to find a hotel that offers free parking. We got a deal on travelzoo that included parking. Parking in SF is expensive and not the easiest to find. Pick a hotel that is central to the attractions you plan to visit. over 6 years ago

    Not easy to park. Traffic is bad and lots of bikers and strange intersections to contend with. Parking meters are expensive. If you do decide to park a car try getting an sfmta parking card (www.sfmta.com > parking > meters) which most meters accept so you won't need to carry tons of change. Don't leave anything in the car ever! SF is not dangerous but cars get broken into ALL THE TIME. I don't leave even a penny in plain sight in my car for fear someone will smash my window in. I repeat cars get broken into all the time. Use caution. Also, back to parking - the lots in the city especially near. Union square and financial district and parts of soma are expensive. You can usually street park if you circle the block for a while. Good luck. If it were me, I'd use public transportation or walk most place. Sf is actually pretty easy to walk if you are willing. Otherwise cabs are a sure bet. over 6 years ago
