221 pp, 8vo (8 1/2" H). B&w photographs, maps. "Utilizing more than seven years of experience roaming the streets of downtown San Francisco during her lunch breaks, author Gail Todd has compiled over 30 walks that are sure to delight. Most of the routes can be completed in about an hour, but timing is, of course, always left up to the adventurer. Whether you decide to take a leisurely stroll or a fast-paced hike, 'Lunchtime Walks' guides you, with informative text and accurate maps, so as not to miss some of the City's most exciting treasures. You'll discover such places as: the Embarcadero waterfront - a sun-filled walker's paradise; the colorful neighborhoods of Chinatown, Japantown, and North Beach; the Cable Car Barn and Museum, where you can see the actual cables as they haul the cars up the City's steep streets; the Butterfly Gardens at Yerba Buena - habitat for several species of local butterflies. In addition to getting some lunchtime exercise, you'll learn about the area's history and architecture, and find out where to catch free noon-time concerts, browse through farmer's markets, and visit galleries and museums (sometimes for free!). All of the walks included in this book are perfectly suitable for Bay Area residents and visitors alike." Interior - small slight bump at top corner of first half of pages, otherwise clean and tight with no other ownership marks. Exterior - slight soft corner crease on rear cover, minor rubbing, very small soft bump at top corner of front cover.
