Welcome to the San Francisco of Armistead Maupin's Tales of the City!
This website is the realization of a ten year dream to share with fellow fans of Armistead Maupin the ability to visit locales in the San Francisco Bay Area (and some further beyond) featured in his books.
Most of the tours, particularly those within San Francisco, are walking tours. Those further afield will require a car.
Each of the tours is in PDF format and is easily downloaded to a computer and printed.
Tours of the Tales
If you're going to San Francisco - in the summer - you might want more than just a flower in your hair. Summer is Fog Season in the City. Be sure to check the forecast before you go to the City.
Consider downloading the tours to a computer and then transferring them to your Kindle or Nook for ease in carrying scripts for the tours you take. You also simply open each of the tours on a tablet or smart phone and use the links within each tour to see videos and visit related websites.
From time to time, the tours will be updated. Periodically, more tours will be added, so check back.
