Union City is located in the San Francisco Bay Area, right across the water from San Francisco itself and adjacent to the well-known city of Fremont. Incorporated in 1959, Union City combined several distinct communities to become the diverse city it is today. Hotels in Union City are a great base from which to explore the cities, wineries, Silicon Valley, and local culture that make up California's Bay Area.
Visiting Union City
Touch down at Oakland International Airport (OAK), and you're only 15 miles from Union City. To get there via public transit, hop on the Bay Area Rapid Transit, ride to the Coliseum Station, transfer to either the green or orange lines, and then ride south, where you can rent a car in Union City upon arrival. Alternatively, catch a taxi, or ride the free shuttle to the Rental Car Center and reserve a vehicle from one of the agencies there. After you check in to your choice of Union City, CA hotels, head over to pay your respects at the Bay Area Flight 93 Memorial, dedicated to honor the victims of the Pennsylvania plane hijacking and crash on September 11, 2001. Later, check out the Union City Historical Museum to explore the regional historical context, or turn your wheels to Eden Landing Ecological Reserve, where extensive salt marshes attract a variety of waterfowl and other wildlife. Later, check out the Union Landing Shopping Center, an outdoor commercial center, to pick up a few souvenirs or treat yourself to something nice. Remember, San Francisco is just around the corner! This is your big chance if you've always wanted to ride the ferry out to see Alcatraz. Travelocity can even help you book a great San Francisco hotel where you can crash afterward.
