Jerry Graham's San Francisco skips the standard tourist attractions covered by other guidebooks to show readers the true soul of the City by the Bay. Giving visitors a chance to experience the city as a native, and providing residents with a deeper appreciation of their city, it leads readers to such unforgettable spots as:
Golden Gate Park: off the main roads of the world-famous park, one will find a herd of bison maintained and fed by an opera-singing volunteer, and a casting pond where one can learn the art of fly-fishing
The Wave Organ: sitting at the end of a jetty beyond the San Francisco Yacht Club, one can listen to the ocean playing its song on a series of pipes planted in the bay while enjoying a spectacular view of the city
The Teddy Bear Factory Tour: visitors get a chance to see how Teddys are made from scratch at a small operation on Potrero Hill
North Beach: advice on where to get the best cappuccino and how to pick up a fast game of bocce
In addition to these destinations, this one-of-a-kind guidebook also features recommendations of food and lodging, restaurant "finds", and anecdotes about the people and places that make San Francisco such a vibrant and unique city.
