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.

What Others Are Saying
You may get caught up in all of the energy of the Embarcadero and not even notice that you've hammered out a PB on this incredibly flat run. Although there is always plenty of action and scenery along this route, the sidewalks are very wide with plenty of room to maintain a quick pace.
