This walk will start at the end of the Panhandle and head into Haight & Ashbury to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the Summer of Love. Hear psychedelic stories from the 1960's and learn about what the Haight was like before and after the hippie movement. We'll explore the secret side of Buena Vista and Corona Heights as we look out on the skylines of the city while discussing urban design. In the Castro we'll share old photos from the 1800's and discuss the LGBTQ+ revolution. The walk will end at Dolores Park for optional local beer at Cerveceria or local ice cream at Bi-Rite.
