This is definitely for the first time (also repeater) tourist for its coverage is so arranged that time and money and personal preferences can be taken care of. A general introduction gives the atmosphere and character of the city and is followed by travels along the waterfront, downtown and around, through the national groups and international eating, the old and new artistic areas. There are activities for families with children, shopping adventures, recommended hotels other than de luxe, a calendar of events, sightseeing tours via bus and boat or in your own car, further material on the Bay section and suggestions for weekend trips, including national parks. History and personalities are very much a part of the whole picture and although, in general, the attitude toward the city is flattering, there are critical comments here and there. Homework for a visit, handy when on the scene.
