SF City Guides: Rare Neighborhood Walking Tours Month | May 2019

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

During the months of May and October, when the San Francisco weather is particularly pleasant, City Guides adds a series of neighborhood explorations to its year round tour schedule.

Each San Francisco neighborhood has a distinct architecture, history, and personality that deserve in-depth exploration. 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 the Tenderloin.

Join for a walk along the streets, sidewalks and by-ways of one of the most beautiful and fascinating cities in the world.

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.
