CASTRO TO THE MISSION TOUR
Date(s) - 08/22/2021
2:30 pm - 5:30 pm
San Francisco is known world-wide for it’s place in LGBTQ+ history and you’ll learn all about how that happened on this tour, before we walk you over to the Mission District, which apart from being an important, historic neighborhood, has some of the best food you can find in S.F. You can combine this tour either with the Nob Hill to the Haight or the Golden Gate Park to the Haight tours by booking them for the same day.
Start your Castro to the Mission tour by learning how the LGBTQ+ movement caught fire during the 1960’s and 70’s in the historic Castro neighborhood. From there we’ll take you through the side-streets (so you can view some of the best street murals around) to the nearby Mission District, which was the birthplace of San Francisco. It was here, in 1776, that colonists built a Mission to establish control of the area for the Spanish King. During the tour you’ll also be able to enjoy some great local food, including San Francisco’s very own Mission Burrito, artisanal cheese and lovely home-made chocolate.
