Board Jet Blue out of Long Beach to San Francisco Airport for an easy and comfortable flight to start your magical adventure and journey.
Get to experience the sights, sounds and flavors of San Mateo County and Silicon Valley with nearly 90 miles of unique San Francisco Bay and Pacific Ocean coastline immediately south of San Francisco. It's bordered on the east by the Bay and on the west by the Pacific Ocean, running through Palo Alto and Stanford University to the south. The fascination with San Mateo County and Silicon Valley is the mild climate with plenty of sunshine allowing for many recreational activities including "Play by the Bay!" It is about the glorious outdoors and the scenic beauty, the beaches, hiking trails, redwoods, reservoir, lagoon, flora and fauna and open space. It is sought after for its cultural attractions, shopping, trendy culinary dining on delicious local food, quaint country chic coastal towns, and more recently for its seafood, produce, gourmet goat cheeses, wine and beer that are all "As Fresh as it Gets!'
