I Left My Heart in San Francisco
Sharing San Francisco Treats

Helpful but not detailed enough in some areas

  • Jun 11, 2010
I've used a number of guidebooks and this is far from my favorite, but it still provided some very useful (if not extensive) information about the areas of California I was visiting, which were Yosemite National Park and San Francisco.

In hindsight, what I probably should have done is buy a San Francisco city guide and a Yosemite guide separately. This guide, in covering all of Northern California, is spread too thin and, as such, does not contain sufficient detail in many areas. For example, I stayed in Union Square and there were barely a few paragraphs of the book covering it. The book does have a fairly good Chinatown section, and includes a walking tour of the area that I found helpful.

What was there was helpful. There just wasn't enough of it for my needs.
