    I never been in US and I don’t now how chaotic it could be the traffic or the public transportation...I saw that the car rental are very cheap instead of the taxi service and also the buses...

    If you ask me if I suggest you to rent a car in Rome or use the public transportation I will strongly recommend the second solution due to the crazy traffic that there is there...

    I would rent a car and use a Map App. Thats just me. Freedom to go when & where you want. Think of driving in LA like a Jeep trail... except your obstacles are Pot Heads & Priuses.

    In SoCal and most US metro areas SF included traffic isn't necessarily chaotic it's just there is a lot of it. It can take over an hour to travel just a few miles at certain times of the day. People here are always in a hurry and do tend to drive aggressively. Having never driven in any other country besides the US I hear despite it all it is still more organized than a lot of countries. If you're used to chaos you'll probably do just fine just plan ahead and give yourself lots of extra time. If I lived down near where you are staying I'd offer to be your tour guide..haha. Slavens lives close to there and is always looking for a new drinking buddy. Perhaps you can sophisticate him and teach him about wine...haha.

    If you are primarily staying in cities, then consider Lyft or Uber instead. Having a car in SF is going to suck big time. Parking is a hassle and is expensive. I use Lyft for business travel now and it’s awesome. Request a car and it shows up in five minutes. The cost is fairly inexpensive if your time is worth anything and you avoid expensive parking fees.

    I don't live far from San Francisco, every time I go I try and ditch my vehicle someplace for the day. Parking on the street is almost impossible in most parts of the city and garages can be expensive. And like LA everyone is in a hurry on narrow packed streets.
    The cable cars are fun to ride. The bus system is pretty good, but a car is nice to get out of the city to see some surrounding areas

    In San Francisco for sure I will move buy public transportation...I have the hotel in the city center (union square) so I don’t think I will need the car...

    Mass transit in LA is basically useless and expensive for the locations you're wanting to go to (LAX to Fullerton). Just rent a car. If you're staying in Santa Monica or downtown areas Uber and Lyft are fine.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
