    San Francisco is 7 mi. x 7 mi. in size. It can easily take 30-45 minutes to drive across the city, and then you can often need to circle 10-15 more minutes in finding a place to park, only to find that you had to park 10-15 min. walk from where you really wanted to go. And if you watch folks parallel park (the CA DMV no longer requires proof of ability to parallel park to pass the driving portion of the licensing test), you can see that you will likely end up paying the rental car company for damage to the bumpers caused by someone nudging your car a bit to park in a space. That, or park in a commercial lot that costs $6-12 for an hour of parking.

    Weigh that vs. taking mass transit across the city.

    PS: I love SF, I went to college in SF, I lived in SF at various times after college. I now hate driving and parking in SF...I try to take mass transit unless I am going to visit someone in the residential areas in the SW quadrant of the city.
