Walking San Francisco, 2ed 
From the Gold Rush to the Summer of Love to the not-so-distant Dotcom days, San Francisco has been a city of distinct neighborhoods, each with an intriguing history. This exceptional guide explores the best of the City "on the ground" that traverse the length and breadth of the City, from North Beach to Lands End, Glen Park to Golden Gate Park.

The 33 specially designed urban treks are not only good exercise but are a great way to soak up the history, culture, and vibe of the City by the Bay. The walks commentary includes trivia about architecture, local culture, and neighborhood history, plus tips on where to dine, have a drink, or shop. Each tour includes a clear neighborhood map and vital public transportation and parking information. Route summaries make each walk easy to follow, and a "Points of Interest" section lists each walk's highlights.

Inside and raconteur Tom Downs guides the urban adventurer from the sloped landscapes of Telegraph Hill to the Beat-Italian flavors of North Beach, and from the rugged parklands of Bernal Heights to the beautiful vistas at Lands End. It takes a trek through the grit and glitter of the Mission, the maritime history of Fisherman’s Wharf, and the Victorian splendor of Pacific Heights. Meandering along the art district around Yerba Buena Plaza and parts of the Barbary Coast trail, to the wharves, bridges, and ballpark at the southern waterfront, this book reveals parts of the city that even seasoned locals overlook.
