If you are looking for a flat place to run in a city famous for hills, look no further than the Embarcadero. This road borders the eastern waterfront of San Francisco and is gratifyingly flat. Traveling the Embarcadero gives one the opportunity to take in some of the sights of San Francisco as you run. When you get to Fisherman's Wharf be alert and ready to weave through plenty of distracted tourists. When you finish, hang out at the Ferry Building, home to shops and a fantastic farmer's market.

[You] feel like you're out on the ocean when you're on the Gashouse Cove Pier; killer view of the Golden Gate Bridge.
Running along the Embarcadero is great, though preferably in the morning before the crowds.
Along the Embarcadero is a great flat route that will give people a view of the city and water.
