Private Jet Charter from Toronto to San Francisco
San Francisco is bursting at the seams with history, culture, and innovation. It’s home to the tech-centric Silicon Valley, the last set of manually operated cable cars and the iconic Painted Ladies. If you’re thinking about chartering a private jet from Toronto to San Francisco, here is some helpful information.
Landing Possibilities in San Francisco
There are several airports in and around San Francisco, each of which can accommodate landing by a private jet charter:

Planning your trip to San Francisco
If you rent a private jet from Toronto to San Francisco, there are a few things to keep in mind, including the city’s notoriously unpredictable weather. Unlike most sun-drenched metropolises found in California, San Francisco is chilly and foggy, even in the summer. To prepare for the city’s ever-changing weather, always carry a jacket or sweater and dress in layers.
Whether it’s your first time visiting or your fifth, there are countless unique things to discover in the city by the bay. Start by venturing through one of the city’s top destinations–Fisherman’s Wharf. The complex offers an abundance of attractions, from Ripley’s Believe it or Not and Madame Tussauds Wax Museum to gift shops, restaurants and cafes.
While you’re touring Fisherman’s Wharf, you have to visit Pier 39. The northern waterfront centre is filled with an endless supply of eclectic restaurants, wineries and shops–including a store dedicated specifically to left-handers! At Pier 39 you’ll also find the Aquarium of the Bay. Located at the water’s edge, the exhibit allows you to get up close and personal with over 20,000 marine animals native to San Francisco Bay.
While you’re visiting San Francisco, you have to visit the city’s most recognized landmark, the Golden Gate Bridge. Whether you view the world-famous bridge from Baker Beach or the Golden Gate National Recreation Area located just outside the city, one thing is for sure, you can’t leave the city without catching a glimpse of this iconic site.
The forty-eight islands situated in San Francisco may not be tropical, but they sure are a sight to see. Hop on a ferry and spend a day at one of the city’s most famous and historically rich islands–The Alcatraz. Whether you take a self-guided tour through the Alcatraz Cellhouse that previously housed inmates like Al Capone and Robert Stroud or visit the island’s former U.S. military fort, you won’t want to miss out on this historical island.
Regardless of which attractions make it onto your travel itinerary, travelling the city by San Francisco’s cable cars is a great way to get a true feel of the city.
With over 3,000 places to eat, it’s no surprise that San Francisco is as famous for its restaurants and delicious dishes as it is for the Golden Gate Bridge.
Follow your nose to find the city’s most unique dining experience, The Stinking Rose. Located in San Francisco’s Little Italy, the restaurant offers scrumptious Italian-California cuisine adorned with garlic. There’s just one thing... If you plan on cabbing there, don’t expect to catch a ride on your way back as cab drivers avoid picking up guests from the restaurant because of the intoxicating smell of garlic.
