For the domestic traveler, San Francisco is a city that can’t be beat and this dazzling guide covers its charms, both great and small. The Golden Gate Bridge, the Palace of Fine Arts, a cable-car ride over Nob Hill, or the Golden Gate Park are all can’t-miss attractions and richly described and illustrated. But a walk through Macondray Lane, the murals in the Mission, or a treat of authentic dim sum are equally inspiring and equally covered in our pages.
