From other parts of the state, getting to San Francisco by car is a harrowing experience. But riding on Amtrak is very enjoyable. I usually drive to the Amtrak station in Sacramento, and take the train into Oakland's Jack London Square or Emeryville (where the connecting bus takes you into downtown San Francisco). It's quicker than driving during the rush hour, and cheaper than parking--if you can even find a place to park in San Francisco.
