Join perennial Forum favorite John Tschirch as he explores the scenic beauty, architectural treasures and rich cultural histories of San Francisco and Newport. These two great coastal municipalities form extraordinary case studies of great American cities. Elaborate Victorian houses, picturesque parks, and opulent Beaux Arts boulevards and buildings make each of these urban beauties a visual feast and a story of American sister cities on the East and West coasts.
