Drive San Francisco to Yosemite - out of practice driving!

Jump to last reply

Hi, I am traveling to SF as part of a trip to the US. I would like to go to Yosmite for a couple of nights. I would rather not drive but the train seems to be a very long way of getting there.

I live in Ireland so am used to driving on the other side of the road. In addition, I am out of practice driving....I live in the centre if Dublin so don't bother with a car as have no need to drive...haven't driven more than a couple of miles in the last six years and even that was only twice! Lived in a small city before that and always drove there and on holidays in New Zealand which is same side of road as Ireland (have a full licence).

So essentially my question is train or car? (Also, if car - any ideas in where would get a manual drive car in SF?)

Thanks!
