City Walks: San Francisco - 50 Adventures on Foot

Published December 2004 - Card Deck - 50 Cards - $14.95

One of my favorite cities in the world, and one I'm sure to revisit someday, is also featured in the City Walks card deck series.  San Francisco is another fabulous city to walk around and explore on foot.  With careful planning ahead of time, you'll be able to make the most of this beautiful city.  There are so many recognizable landmarks that you'll often find yourself in a déjà vu state.  San Francisco is not only hills and cable cars, it offers a wide variety of cultures, styles, and adventures.  Although there are hills, forty-three of them, some tours require a little extra effort and are so indicated at the beginning of the walks.  Good walking shoes goes without saying (the last thing you need is sore or tired or blistered feet!) and with some foresight, you should be just fine.  Most walks are one to two miles long and should take one to two hours.  The public transport system is a godsend as you have the option of buses, cable cars, or trains to choose from.  This seven-by-seven mile city is jam-packed with people, scenic vistas of the city from many vantage points, pretty streets and buildings, bridges, gorgeous coastlines, fabulous Victorian cottages, history both old and new, great places to eat, and many more surprises.  Some of the attractions you'll come across using these cards include Union Square (for the serious shopper), Chinatown (a must-see!), the Fairmont Hotel (step inside the foyer for a looksee), Lombard Street, Coit Tower, Fisherman's Wharf, Alcatraz and Angel Islands, Crissy Field, the Golden Gate Bridge and Golden Gate Park, the Japanese Tea Garden, Haight-Ashbury, Twin Peaks, and much much more.  If you love Rodin sculptures, you're in luck.

Conclusion - A city you have got to see for yourself.
