I'm planning a last minute trip to California to visit some friends there. I have a friend in Palo Alto, another in SF proper and one at Caltech. Complication: I don't have a driver's license so can't rent a car. Is it possible to fly into SFO, spend some days in Palo Alto/SF, then take say an Amtrak train to LA and then get from wherever that drops me off to the Caltech campus, then from there to LAX to fly back home. My friends in SF/Palo Alto drive, but the one in Pasadena doesn't. I'm beginning to wonder if this is all too much hassle for a less than a week long trip and I should just stick to SF/Palo Alto for this trip. Any advice would be much appreciated. I'm currently in Ithaca, NY and am flexible as to dates etc.
