Overview

Over the years the city of San Francisco has become one of America's premier tourist attractions. And with good reason! It offers an enviable climate, a wealth of cultural institutions, superb dining, and shopping for every taste.

Yet it is for the traveler with a limited purse that Connie Emerson writes The Cheapskate's Guide to San Francisco. From airline tickets to hotel reservations, Emerson teaches readers how to take the best advantage of "deals". She offers tips on discount shopping as well as restaurants where the food (of every variety) is not overpriced.

Readers will be introduced to all major points of interest with an easy-to-understand directional guide.

The Cheapskate's Guide to San Francisco is a must for anyone who wants to enjoy a vacation without having a financial breakdown.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
Emerson (The Cheapskate's Guide to Las Vegas, Citadel, 1994) aims at low-budget travelers who don't want to spend more money than necessary. However, frugality is not without its perils. Restaurants and hotels are often cheap for well-deserved reasons. Unappetizing meals and fleabag hotels can leave a wallet full but ruin a trip. Emerson is adept at judging when spending a few dollars more is worthwhile and when it isn't; this is her book's greatest strength. Written in a frank but noncynical manner, this guide is chockablock with information, both basic and esoteric; those venturing abroad for the first time will find it more useful than would more experienced travelers. London is the most popular destination for Americans going to Europe, and many good guidebooks are already available to the city. Nevertheless, this straightforward, thorough volume is a welcome addition. Highly recommended for public libraries. -Mary C. Kalfatovic, Telesec Lib. Svcs., Washington, D.C.
