ABOUT DETOUR SAN FRANCISCO
Detour San Francisco is a set of 10 hour-long walks, each carefully chosen to reveal a piece of what makes San Francisco one of the most interesting and important cities in the world. On these walks, you’ll see the spots that make San Francisco famous, while hearing stories and meeting people that reveal the heart of the city.
You’ll relive the Summer of Love in Haight-Ashbury with one of the hippies that got the revolution rolling. You’ll walk through the Castro’s history with one of the men at its center, who will take you down the street where he and his bullhorn helped spark a worldwide revolution. You’ll ride a cable car through the home of the Beat Generation while Lawrence Ferlinghetti reads you poetry. You’ll go to the original home of the Jonestown Cult, with one of the few members to survive the Kool-Aid fueled mass suicide. You’ll have a drink with a drag queen in the Tenderloin’s last gay bar, as she shows you San Francisco’s most confounding neighborhood. That’s just a glimpse of what Detour has in store.
Take them in any order, on your own schedule and at your own pace. With over a dozen hours of discovery, Detour will show you a San Francisco that even natives rarely see.
