300 Reasons to Love San Francisco

Forget conventional travel guides and discover the "real" San Francisco! She loves Art Deco and the latest techno music. She grows organic vegetables on her rooftops and has some of the greatest cuisine in the world. Whether you've already fallen for the city that inspired Jack Kerouac, Harvey Milk and Twitter, or you're getting ready for your first encounter, this book will be a revelation. Get ready to meet San Francisco. You'll go exploring with Marie-Joelle Parent, who knows the city like an old friend. She'll take you for picnics at the top of its skyscraper and to surfing lessons at cozy beaches. She'll bring you into secret vineyards and invite you for an unforgettable meal, with the Golden Gate Bridge as a backdrop. You can check out countercultural hotspots and the headquarters of Google; visit a forest with thousand-year-old redwoods and the house-museum of a legendary artist; sample the most authentic pastries in Japantown; and comb through the racks of a store that's every hipster's ultimate dream. You'll have more than enough reasons to fall in love with the city that's as eccentric as it is irresistible.
