I have a trip planned to San Francisco May 2015. I'm staying in a hotel downtown area. Nice place. I'm not a geography buff however I do know that Oakland is a place I should stay clear of. I'll be going with my wife. I would like to drive in a rental car north towards Canada on the scenic the highway. Is that highway 101? If not do guys have any suggestions? I will need a rental from San Francisco so if you have any ideas that would be great. I'd like to cross the Golden Gate and see the jail San Quentin. Any other ideas guys/girls would be great, thanks.
