Walking San Francisco’s 49 Mile Scenic Drive: Explore the Famous Sites, Neighborhoods, and Vistas in 17 Enchanting Walks
Many think San Francisco is one of the most beautiful cities in the United States. And what better way to see such a beautiful place, to really soak up all the charm and uniqueness, than on foot? This book offers a terrific way to see all the highlights of San Francisco in seventeen doable chunks of two to four miles each. Each chapter contains an historical overview of the area, a map of the day’s walk facing a list of the landmarks one will pass during the walk, several pages of text explaining the details of the walk and photographs of some of the sights, a detailed turn-by-turn itinerary with return options, and a clever newspaper-like spread with historical happenings for the area. Back-matter includes information on parking, public transportation, and driving directions.
Authors Kristine Poggioli and Carolyn Eidson are the first people known to have walked the forty-nine-mile Scenic Drive. It started them on a combined seventy-five-pound weight loss journey, and a wonderful book was born. The writing is crisp and fun, the photographs are terrific, and the whole package is one of the best and most unique travel books out there.
