San Francisco is a city that needs little introduction. Author Sam Trezise points you in the right direction around the Golden City, paying equal homage to the iconic places and current trends that make this city so progressive. Discover the heart of the downtown area with its stalwart diners and dive bars, take a cable car across the city's undulating streets, or let the effects of Silicon Valley and tech giants like Google sink in while you shop in some of the best high-end designer shops and vintage stores to be found anywhere in the US. San Francisco Pocket Precincts is your curated guide to the city's best cultural, shopping, eating and drinking experiences. This guide includes a selection of 'field trips' encouraging you to venture further afield to the outer Bay Areas, the Napa Valley wine region and Yosemite National Park.
