A 2.5 hr walking tour

Allow me to share the historic buildings, post 1906 and 1989 earthquakes and walk the San Andreas Fault. Architecture! Greek, Italianate, Gothic Revival, Neoclassical, Frank Lloyd Wright as well other famous builders, all with the whole California vibe. Strolling the flat shaded streets or an easy three 300ft. climb for the view -you decide!

Finishing off with a step into the biker "myths or truths" or if that's not your interest, refreshments at any of a number of colorful downtown establishments. This tour can be customized to your interests or allow me to share the area's generality. I'm here to make your visit one to be remembered fondly!


Meet on the grassy plaza, circle the commercial historic district, then on to the residential district.

Afterwards, we'll check out the San Andreas Fault, up to Park Hill for the view, and then on to Jonny's for a cold one.
