Get to Know San Francisco’s Vibrant and Historic Neighborhoods

From the Gold Rush to the Summer of Love to the dotcom days, San Francisco is a richly historic city of scenic vistas and diverse neighborhoods. This savvy, entertaining guide explores the best of it all. Kathleen Dodge Doherty and Tom Downs guide you through 35 unique walking tours that traverse San Francisco’s length and breadth. These urban treks are great ways to soak in the vibe of the City by the Bay. The walks’ commentaries include such topics as architecture, local culture, trivia, and neighborhood history, plus tips on where to dine, have a drink, and shop. Each self-guided tour includes full-color photographs, a map, and need-to-know details like distance, difficulty, and more. Route summaries make each walk easy to follow, and a “Points of Interest” section lists the highlights of every tour. Walking San Francisco provides the perfect path for a weekend, an after-work ramble, or a sociable pub crawl. So grab your walking shoes, and become an urban adventurer!


About Kathleen Dodge Doherty with Tom Downs

Kathleen Dodge Doherty is a San Francisco–based freelance writer, adventurer, and lover of all things outdoorsy and literary. For more than two decades, Kathleen has been writing, editing, and reading about San Francisco—climbing hills, downing burritos, paying too much for coffee, and ferreting out speakeasies in the name of research. She is the author (with Jordan Summers) of Day & Section Hikes: John Muir Trail (Menasha Ridge Press) and has also written for Fodor’s, Lonely Planet, Moon Handbooks, Afar Magazine, AAA Via Magazine, and many websites. A one-time researcher, developer, and leader of bicycling and hiking tours worldwide, Kathleen largely runs after her kids and jumps in local puddles these days. A swashbuckler at heart, Kathleen is continually surprised by the never-ending treasures that await in her city by the bay.

Tom Downs grew up in the Santa Clara Valley, south of San Francisco. He has lived in Los Angeles, New York City, Oakland, and Berkeley, as well as in Chinatown and the MissionDistrict in San Francisco. He is a travel writer who has authored books and articles about New Orleans, Hanoi, and the West of Ireland for Lonely Planet, BBC Studios, and a host of magazines, newspapers, and websites. His photography has appeared in publications including National Geographic and The New York Times. In 2007 his post-Katrina Lonely Planet New Orleans was honored with the Lowell Thomas Award, granted by the Society of American Travel Writers, for Best Guidebook.
