An unusual guide to San Francisco's special attractions, this foldout, attractive cut-paper book opens accordion style to show the sights you'll want to see on a trip to San Francisco.

On one side is the Golden Gate Bridge, the glass Conservatory of Flowers in Golden Gate Park, Alamo Square and the famous Painted Victorians, curvy Lombard Street, the Palace of Fine Arts, Pier 39 and the infamous Alcatraz Island.

On the foldout's other side you'll find Fisherman's Wharf, Coit Tower, Chinatown, the towering Transamerica Pyramid, the downtown Museum of Modern Art and the S. F. Giants' home, AT&T Park.

A brief paragraph accompanies each scene and explains something about what you are viewing, plus there's a small map of the city that highlights in which section of San Francisco you'll find these attractions. The foldout also comes with its own slipcase to keep it safe.

Not only is this a nice memento of the city, but it is also perfect for preparing for a visit. You'll get a nice introduction to these famous attractions before you view them up close and personal.
