    Ferry Building

    For much of the early 20th century, nobody traversed the Bay without going through the Ferry Building. At its peak in the 1930s, it was the second-busiest travel hub in the world, shuttling more than 50,000 people both to and from San Francisco each day.  When the city built its famous bridges, ferry travel dropped dramatically, and the building suffered for decades. In the ‘90s  the Ferry Building transformed into a world-class food market focusing on local artisan creations. Today, it remains an iconic landmark of the waterfront (and a popular establishing shot for movies set in San Francisco).  Join us on a wondrous trip through the centerpiece of the shoreline.

    Inner Sunset: The Birth Of A Neighborhood

    The story of the Sunset District began with windswept dunes and coastal scrub.

Affordable real estate prices, coupled with the misleading “Sunset” moniker brought waves of residents. There’s a lot to love about the Inner Sunset: its proximity to some of San Francisco’s best parks, its charming small-town atmosphere and the fact you can walk just about anywhere you need to go.  Discover the lore of the Sunset.

    Pacific Heights Mansions

    Old money heirs share fences with newly minted tech billionaires in Pacific Heights, arguably one of San Francisco’s toniest and most exclusive neighborhoods. Atop a hill with majestic views, the area’s towering mansions were a manifestation of of Victorian excess and a key part of the Gold Coast’s development. After the 1906 earthquake, homeless quake refugees provided the moneyed residents a different sort of neighbor. You’re as likely to run into a celebrity resident as a diplomat visiting one of the manses-turned-consultates.

    Potrero Hill

    It was the 1850s on the southern edge of town cattle peacefully grazed the hill know as Potrero Nuevo (“new pasture”). But bustling industry along the shoreline below the hill created a need for nearby housing. Hear how Potrero Hill was urbanized, industrialized, and then gentrified in the 1990s. Yet, today, some residents still feel like it’s a secret — isolated from the rest of the city, but blessed with sweeping views of the skyline and Bay.

    Telegraph Hill Stairway Hike

    Even for an eccentric city like San Francisco, Lillie Coit was an anomaly in the 1920s: a wealthy socialite known for smoking cigars, wearing trousers, and gambling like crazy (often dressed as a man to bypass the establishments’ restrictions on women). When she died in 1929, her passion for San Francisco lived on, devoting more than a third of her fortune to beautifying the city she loved.
