Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
It's hard to imagine a more comprehensive and useful guide to San Francisco than Delehanty's. These 600 pages provide a myriad of details for the traveler: maps, parking and public transit information, lodging, shopping, restaurants. Delehanty has divided the city into 13 very interesting walking tours. There are also six regional driving day trips. Fascinating biographies of the city's founders, locations of obscure museums, descriptions and histories of major and minor landmarks, e.g., the Coit Tower murals, Mark Hopkins Hotel, Transamerica Pyramid, and practically every building in the city--Levi-Strauss headquarters, Esprit Outlet Store, Fog City Diner--make this essential reading for any first-time tourist and fun reading for residents and frequent visitors. Index and illustrations not seen. Highly recommended--even for library reference collections.-- Thomas K. Fry, UCLA Libs.

    Walk the city's neighborhoods as history comes alive!

    This is the best guide book I have ever come across for in-depth coverage of San Francisco's out-of-the-way historic crannies. The chapters in the book focus on neighborhoods, and are formatted along walking tour routes. For example, the chapter on Haight Ashbury not only takes you through the district's '60s free-love past (the Drogstore, the Grateful Dead house, etc.), but also digs deeper into history, pointing out Edwardian and Victorian block homes built by turn-of-the-century San Franciscans while giving a glimpse into the living condtions and social strata in the city at that time. Also points out a beautiful gigantic cast-iron gate (created in the '70s, replete with description) that sits in front of a Victorian home off the beaten path of Haight St. -- something I surely would have overlooked if I'd just been hoofing it through the neighborhood without this guide. My favourite aspect of this book is that its walking tours take you past expensive places and hoity toity restaurants and tourist destinations, but you get enough of a heaping serving of SF history while afoot that you don't have to spend any money at all, if you don't want to, and still learn a whooooooooole lot about this city by the bay. If you can get your hands on it, by all means, snatch it up.
