It’s been a busy autumn here at Hg2, with a lot of new city guides in the pipeline. A few weeks ago, we launched our new Tel Aviv city guide and today we’re pleased to announce the launch of our brand new San Francisco city guide. There’s a lot to love about the City by the Bay: its laid-back vibe, commitment to equality, kooky shopping and stellar restaurants. Not to mention the go-for-it, all-encompassing nightlife scene.

The new Hg2 San Francisco city guide offers the best hotels, restaurants, bars, clubs, shopping and sightseeing in San Francisco to get you going on your next California holiday. We’ve also put together a map of the city, a San Fran reading list to inspire and inform your trip and a list of great bloggers to check out.
In celebration, we’ve picked out a few of our favourite San Francisco videos to help set the mood.
