There are four airports within 75 miles of the Silverado:

Getting to the Silverado Resort From The Airport

Car Rental: Most of the major US car rental companies have offices at the four area airports listed above. Driving directions each of the airports to the Silverado Resort are posted on the Silverado Resort website: link to driving directions.

Taxi Service: The Silverado Resort is too far from the airports for taxi service to be economical. We recommend either a shuttle service or limousine service.

Shuttle and Limousine Service: The Silverado Resort recommends Evans Transportation to and from San Francisco International Airport (SFO) and Oakland Airport (OAK). Reservations are required. Follow the "Airporter Schedule" on the left-hand panel of the Evans Transportation website for schedules and rates for SFO and OAK.
