Informed by on-the-ground research, Herb Lester's handy, folded guides uncover what makes a city special - its most distinctive shops, restaurants, cafés, bars, museums and galleries, whether unmissable old favourites, exciting new arrivals or overlooked treasures. Each entry comes with its own brief description, and a basic map helps the reader get their bearings and make plans.
This compact guide comprises 40 places that bear the city's distinctive mark. There are survivors of beatnik-era North Beach, a vintage magazine shop catering to a very diverse clientele, taquerias and a Chinatown bar. There are clifftop eateries and cable cars, unconventional horticulturalists, entirely au courant exhibits and bison in Golden Gate Park.
Printed on a single sheet of 100% recycled paper, these light, portable guides are an ideal travelling companion.
