As you fly to Antioch, California, the Pacific Ocean glitters from the air and you can see the California coast open up below. Antioch sits at the opening of the San Joaquin-Sacramento River Delta. It is the gateway to the Pacific Ocean, as the delta leads right into the San Francisco Bay. As your plane clears the Mount Diablo, you'll soon land at Stockton Metropolitan Airport (SCK). Antioch sits between San Francisco, Silicon Valley, and Lake Tahoe, so get ready for some serious exploration.
Transportation from SCK
Flights to Antioch may leave you with a little more travel to your vacation home. Finding an airport hotel in Antioch might be a challenge, but look a little further afield to find plenty of accommodations. Getting to your hotel should be no trouble though, because SCK offers a variety of transportation options. There's no public transportation, but there are plenty of taxi services and shared-ride options. If you're using one of the non-metered services, be sure to schedule pickup in advance to cut down on your wait time. If you'd like to do the driving, book a rental car before leaving the airport. Inside the terminal are several options at airport pickup and drop off. Once you drop your bags at your hotel, spend some time at the Mangini Museum Cultural Museum. It's 42 miles west of Antioch and makes a nice stop-off point if you're heading into San Francisco for the day. Head another 37 miles southwest to take in the views from the Bay Bridge.
