This year marks a number of landmark celebrations for the city lovingly known as ‘The Paris of the West’. Thanks to a new free online travel guide, visitors can experience the delights of the city in a single day.
San Francisco, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 06/21/2012 -- For the team of travel professionals at SightsoftheCity.com, the requirements are simple – develop free and exciting online city guides, with an emphasis on to-the-point information.
In fact, the information is so succinct that their single-day travel itineraries allow visitors to see an entire city before bedtime. Perfect for the business traveller, day tourist or even residents who want to explore their home in style, the guides cut through the waffle and ensure that every city is only a day away.
The site currently features other destinations in the United States, including Las Vegas City Guide, New York City Guide, Oahu Guide, Orlando Guide and a San Francisco Guide.
The latter is proving extremely popular among tourists, with San Francisco celebrating an important milestone in 2012.
All eyes are on the city as the Golden Gate Bridge celebrates its birthday and the America’s Cup sailing races kick off later this year. Coupled with a major remodelling of the city’s waterfront – there has never been a better year to visit The City in the Bay.
“While there is a lot to see and do, we realize that most people don’t visit San Francisco for any more than a few days,” says the SightsoftheCity.com’s Owner, a renowned travel professional with a thirst for sharing his passion.
He continues, “Our single-day travel itinerary allows people to print it off for free, arrive on San Fran’s doorstep and see all of the city’s top sights with plenty of time for dinner.”
While produced to allow a typical tourist to see a city in just one day, the team at Sights of the City don’t suggest a mad dash race to the finish. In fact, quite the opposite.
“There is a misconception that seeing a major City in a day will require moving at an uncomfortable pace. This just isn’t true; everything is designed to be experienced at a natural, pleasurable and even relaxing pace,” the site’s Owner adds.
Adding to the options afforded to travellers, the website also allows visitors to book tickets and tours for every attraction featured. Direct booking links are contained within each guide’s online counterpart – allowing visitors to plan their entire stay on one website.
Everything is free, available online 24 hours a day and guaranteed to take the confusion and frustration out of city break planning.
Oh yes – and just like Frank Sinatra and Tony Bennett - visitors are invited to leave their hearts in San Francisco.

About Sights of the City
Sights of the City’s mission is to provide readers with to-the-point travel guides that make planning their next city trip easy. Considering everyone’s busy lives and information overload, the website felt that it’s necessary to condense travel tips into a few pages, so plans easily can be made even on the go.
Each city guide includes brief visitor information about a user’s chosen destination, outlining the general vibe and layout. The website offer insights on what parts of town to find hotels or lodging in, what transit options tourists have, and what weather to expect.
More importantly, Sights of the City provides one-day itineraries of cities to help readers see the most of their des-tination in just a day’s time. Their itineraries tend to be pretty packed since the site’s owners are pretty gung-ho about exploring destinations to their fullest, so readers certainly can break up their one-day itineraries into multiple days.
And once travellers are done with their suggested program, check out their favorite tours, activities and attractions to extend a stay. Or, if ready to skip town, they provide travel tips for tours beyond the city limits.
In addition to their city guides, they offer one of the most complete online stores for tours, attractions and activities from around the world, often at greatly discounted to help everyone save money on their next vacation.
Their city guides and suggested or favorite programs are independent on of what readers can choose in the site’s online store. Sights of the City simply wants everyone to know what they personally have enjoyed seeing the most, but then give everyone the option to make bookings to their personal likings.
