San Francisco City Guides offers dozens of free guided walking tours, all over the city, throughout the year.

But things get special during the months of May and October each year, when the San Francisco weather is particularly pleasant, City Guides add a slate of rare neighborhood explorations to its year round tour schedule.

Go off the beaten path and discover the colorful characters, beautiful vistas, and charming architectural treasures that can be found in communities like the Inner Richmond, Visitacion Valley, or Glen Park. Each San Francisco neighborhood has a distinct architecture, history, and personality that deserve in-depth exploration.

Tenderloin Neighborhood Part I | SF City Guides: Neighborhood Walking Tours Month | October 2017

Explore the Tenderloin’s isolated rural village beginnings and its years as a quiet residential and small business neighborhood.

Find out how it morphed into San Francisco’s hotel and silk stocking entertainment and vice district, how it became part of the mean streets in the last half of the 20th century, and how it is trying to reinvent itself as the entertainment and restaurant district it used to be.

Learn about the days of the Uptown Tenderloin, San Francisco’s bootlegger wars, the start of the San Francisco movie industry, famous madams, neighborhood gambling and jazz clubs, and Little Saigon.

This tour is offered in May and October only.

Location:
Meet at Powell & Market Streets
