My bad, I knew that 5 did not go through S.F. but 101 does. I do remember going through that downtown area and yes watch your lanes. I think I will go around and avoid San Francisco. We are headed for the Sonoma County Fair grounds.

With the extra miles, time and the toll of $6.00 per axle, the economics say drive through San Francisco.

I went right through the center of San Francisco and across the Golden Gate bridge. No problem at all.

Lots of stop and go but you sit higher and can anticipate. Changing lanes is a pain so be prepared way in advance. Idiots will cut you off in a second and jump up next to you seeing that much space available if you are trying to change lanes.

Don't worry, you will get through it in 4-8 hours. Ok, maybe two or three.

Go up the eastern side of the bay and catch 101 above the Golden Gate Bridge.
