GrassRoutes Guide to
Oakland & Berkeley


GrassRoutes is a new kind of guidebook, written by and appealing to a younger generation than other travel guide series. The books address an interest in green travel, sustainable living, and interest in youth culture and music. There really is a there there, and this book points the way. Whether it’s vegan organic or late-night literary, an urban bike tour or stalking fine art and architecture, this lively guide reveals the thriving metropolis forever in San Francisco’s shadow. Listings cover cafés, markets, music, art, contemplative places, and other friendly scenes, with an emphasis on sustainability and local flavor.

Forging a new standard.
