The number 49 has long had special significance for San Francisco. The city's population exploded with the Gold Rush of 1949. The city itself measures 49 square miles (or "49 square miles surrounded by reality," as one luminary once said). Motorists can tour the city on the 49 Mile Scenic Drive. And don't forget that famous football team with 49 in the name.
The average weekend is 48 hours, but in San Francisco, there's no such thing as an average weekend. It takes at least 49 hours -- or an extra day - to explore new neighborhoods, experience new ideas in art and culture and indulge in some of the best food in America.
