9780028620879: Frommer's San Francisco from $60 a Day (1st Ed.)

Frommer s is the leading name in affordable travel not for backpackers who want to rough it, but for travelers with taste, who demand comfortable accommodations and good, authentic meals. We re the only series for travelers who have outgrown their student lifestyle but still want to stretch their dollars. Our guides are packed with listings for low-cost hotels not fleabags and dorms, but inexpensive mom-and-pop motels, B&Bs of character, pensiones, and comfortable hostels. There are also low-cost bistros and ethnic restaurants; money-saving tips on transportation, shopping, and nightlife; and a complete sightseeing guide, which is supplemented by the best things to do for free (or almost). And we ve also thrown in some wonderful choices for those times when you really just want to splurge a bit. Each and every listing gives exact prices in local and U.S. currency so travelers can plan their budgets carefully. The back cover of each guide shows travelers one of the attractive, low-cost hotels that we review. Inside, the books are packed with accurate, detailed maps carefully keyed to the text. And each guide is packed with hundreds of dollars worth of money-saving coupons travelers can use on the road. Frommer s knows that low-cost travel can and should be fun, rewarding, and authentic so we take readers to places where the tour buses don t go and show them the real heart of every destination. Frommer s helps travelers keep an eye on the bottom line without sacrificing comfort, fun, and style!
