Frommer's San Francisco 2005
Thoroughly updated every year (unlike most of the competition), Frommer's San Francisco features everything you need to know to enjoy the sights and experiences that await you in the City by the Bay. Our author, a longtime resident and noted dining critic, hits all the highlights, from Golden Gate Park to North Beach. She's checked out all the city's best hotels and restaurants in person, and will help you find the choices that suit your tastes and budget. Her honest, irreverent, and opinionated dining reviews encompass everything from the best dim sum to the freshest seafood, from affordable burrito joints and Vietnamese restaurants to trendy bistros opened by California's hottest chefs.
Look for up-to-the-minute coverage of shopping and nightlife; detailed walking tours; accurate neighborhood maps; and side trips to Berkeley, Sausalito, Muir Woods, Point Reyes, and more. There's also a detailed chapter on the nearby Wine Country, with the best wineries, inns, spas, and gourmet shopping, and the most decadent restaurants in the Napa and Sonoma Valleys. You'll even get a free color fold-out map and an online directory that makes trip-planning a snap!
