The main objective of The 500 Hidden Secrets of San Francisco is to share places not typically included in tourist guides, so visitors (and locals alike) can venture off the beaten track and discover hidden gems tucked within the hills of San Francisco — with really detailed maps included. As you leaf through the guide and examine the categories you’ll discover the city’s renowned restaurants, secret watering holes, curious little shops and galleries, old historic places, as well as the favorite haunts of locals themselves. hunting for the city’s best burritos, places to satisfy your sweet tooth or the best spot to slurp oysters? leslie’s got it covered. from the latest food trucks to san francisco’s classic eateries, they’re all included in the book. for more local gems (and beautiful photography) from leslie, be sure to follow her instagram account at @spottedsf.
