San Francisco is more than the Golden Gate Bridge, Fisherman's Wharf, and cable cars. This guide reveals the out-of-the-way spots that many tourists overlook, including the Japanese Tea Garden, the Cartoon Art Museum, and the Exploratorium.

Tired of the same old tourist traps? Take the road less traveled and discover the hidden attractions, unique finds, and unusual locales other guidebooks just don’t offer. Off the Beaten Path® features the things you’d want to see—if only you knew about them! From the best in local dining to quirky cultural tidbits, you’ll say over and over again: “I didn’t know that!”
Whether you’re a visitor or a local looking for something different, let San Francisco Off the Beaten Path show you the Golden Gate City you never knew existed. Explore a kaleidoscope of neighborhoods—from the Mexican and Latin-American communities of the Mission to the laid-back hippie feel of Haight-Ashbury to the old-money influence in hobnobby Nob Hill. Along the way, find a church named for St. John Coltrane (the saxophonist), a Wave Organ sound sculpture run by the tides, and a place where you can catch a comedian while doing laundry. So if you’ve “been there, done that” one too many times, get off the main road and venture Off the Beaten Path.
