"The Rough Guide to San Francisco" is the complete travel handbook to California's fabled city by the bay. Now in its seventh edition, the guide is jam-packed with details on of all the best places to stay, eat and drink, catering for every taste and every budget. Along with thorough accounts of San Francisco's top tourist areas, from Downtown to Golden Gate Park, the guide also takes time to explore less well-known but no less deserving destinations, from the Mission districts colourful murals to the relaxed charms of the Richmond and Sunset neighbourhoods. There are four in-depth chapters exploring the Bay area, including information on Berkeley, Oakland, San Jose, Marin County, Napa, Sonoma and the Russian River Valleys. The guide looks at San Francisco's interesting, history, culture and literature, and comes complete with detailed maps and plans for the entire city and Bay Area.
