Combining an area of thriving business and stunning landscapes, the California Bay area is an interesting region that is best viewed by road, and there are some superb state highways that afford stunning scenery. Once you have collected your hire car you will be ready to start your driving adventure and see the extraordinary sights the area holds. Starting in Oakland, the busiest port in San Francisco Bay and situated on the east side of California Bay, you will be immediately drawn to the stunning panorama of Lake Merritt, a real fusion of modern buildings and technology and smooth sailing waters and greenery. Despite the port being one of the busiest in the region, there are still many rare and endangered species living happily in the waters around the city.
Crossing the Oakland Bay Bridge and into San Francisco takes you over the wonderful Treasure Island with the world famous Alcatraz Island just a little further away. Driving through the area is often slow as the volume of traffic is notoriously high, even at night-time. This does, however, give everyone the opportunity to take in the wonderful sights this area affords. If you want a more leisurely and less populated view of the region, head for the Pacific Coast Highway where you will enjoy incredible views of the Bay and beyond.
Travelling through San Francisco in your hire car will bring you to Redwood City, an interesting area of cultural history alongside rapidly growing business and industrial developments. The city is also known for its art, theatre and music scene and is a popular destination for those attending concerts and shows. Downtown Redwood is a popular place to visit for restaurants and bars as well as the entertainment scene. Redwood City also provides great links to state parks and other areas of natural beauty to the south of the city.
California Bay is a wonderful place to visit and combines all the modern facilities expected of such a thriving region with the beauty and natural splendour of some of America's finest national parks. Time spent in this region will see you exploring the dark and mysterious stories of Alcatraz, celebrity spotting in the bars and restaurants, and having your breath taken away by the sheer beauty the bay affords. This is literally a destination where there is something different to do every day and one to which you will want to return time and again.
