This way you may see everything at no greater cost/ ENTER California from the East through the American River gateway or the Feather River gateway, or from the North, past majestic Mt.

Then -San Francisco! Gay, colorful, cosmopolitan - the financial metropolis of the Pacific Coast-with room in its Bay for the combined navies of the globe-with famous hotels Old World cafes - Chinatown - the Latin Quarter - smart restaurants by the ocean-a shopping district that sparkles Golden Gate Park-magnificent seashore drives, and the clus tered cities of the Bay district with all-year garden homes and the two great universities of California and Stanford.
