Shaping San Francisco’s Shoreline 

Neighborhood: Embarcadero


The San Francisco Bay Shoreline from Mission Bay north to the Financial District has undergone many changes through the years, changes that continue to this day.  Take in the beautiful bay vistas and urban design while we share information about a more industrial landscape in years past, the conservation of what’s currently here, and planning to protect the shoreline in the future.

Strolls will follow a strict no-contact policy, so rather than accepting donations at the conclusion of a walk, people will be asked to donate $15 per person online when reserving their spot. City Guides is earmarking most of that donation to support history education in San Francisco through the Fracchia Prize that City Guides co-sponsors with the San Francisco Historical Society.

Note that these strolls are limited to 10 people. Pre-registration is required.
