Before Google Maps, before Yelp, before TripAdvisor — heck, before Netscape even — there were printed guidebooks and maps. This combination guide map was the work of MapEasy, founded just 3 years prior to its publication, and it is particularly well-executed. With excellent use of color and pictorials, the map features local establishments, suggests walking itineraries, and highlights, well, the highlights of the city.
Be sure to check out both sides. The verso has four cool insets: Neighborhoods of San Francisco, Union Square, Fisherman’s Wharf, and a Bay Area map titled, ‘Out of Town…and short adventures!’
