Oakland International Airport

Oakland International Airport is another option for flying out of the area. While not as big as SFO it is a little closer and easier to get in and out than its big brother across the bay. They have jetBlue flights to Long Beach for a relatively cheap trip to Southern California. Sometimes you can get a cheaper flight out of Oakland than out of SFO.
