Think You Know San Francisco?

Put your city smarts to the test with this quiz. Each answer reveals a neat tip for your next visit.

The City by the Bay's locals know what makes it special: row after row of colorful Victorian houses, a famous bridge that gleams bright orange, the clang of a historic cable car bell, fog that rolls in as if it's part of a film noir, and a food-and-drink culture that borders on cult.

Think you know San Francisco like the back of your hand? Take this quiz to find out.

If you score a 9 to 12, you deserve an Irish coffee or sourdough bread loaf. Get between 5 and 8 right, and you'll need to do additional research at City Lights Bookstore, a favorite Beat poet hangout. Score any lower, and you'll need to keep visiting until you get the quiz right.
