Making Waves on the Waterfront

Neighborhood: Embarcadero


Feel the surge of disruption that ripples throughout the San Francisco waterfront. Learn about the Gold Rush pioneers, entrepreneurs, inventors and architects that created this modern marvel of a city. We’ll explore level ground (no hills to climb), visiting a grand collection of historic sites and hidden parks, all along the sensational northern shoreline.
