San Francisco is home to some of America’s most intriguing architecture and design, including the iconic Golden Gate Bridge, the bustling Fisherman’s Wharf and Pier 39, the ornate Chinatown, and the mysterious prison on Alcatraz Island. The book alows you to visit Coit Tower and Lombard Street—the “crookedest street in the world”—on Telegraph Hill, hop on one of the famous streetcars and travel through eclectic neighborhoods where Victorian sophistication is juxtaposed with modern elements. Stop by the Mission District, which was once home to the Ohlone Indians and Spanish missionaries, and is now full of artists and hipsters. Beat, counterculture, and gay and lesbian movements have thrived in such legendary neighborhoods as North Beach, Haight-Ashbury, and the Castro. Sites include: Golden Gate Bridge, Palace of Fine Arts, Alcatraz, Fisherman's Wharf, Lombard Street, Coit Tower, Chinatown, Nob Hill, Ferry Building, Bay Bridge, Lotta's Fountain, Union Square, Candlestick Point, Alamo Square, Castro District, Twin Peaks, Haight-Ashbury, Cliff House, and Ocean Beach.
