Where

The majority of large cities have a handful of free walking tours…but San Francisco has almost 100! That’s right: If you want to get a better look into San Francisco’s history, neighborhoods, architecture, food or more, just pick a tour and show up. Each tour is a “pay as you wish” tour, so you get to pick how much you’d like to tip the tour guide. Some recommended tours include the Japanese Tea Garden, Haight Ashbury and North Beach. The best part is that there are multiple tours daily at different times, so you can choose one that’s comfortable for you and your race schedule.

Here are three of my favorite walking tours:

  • Chinatown Family Associations, Tongs and Gangs: A Historic Look. I like this one in particular because it shows Chinatown’s rich (and interesting!) history. You’ll get to see the exact buildings and places where history took place during the Gold Rush.
  • Golden Gate Bridge—A great introduction to SF’s most famous landmark and its importance.
  • Nob Hill—I recommend this tour to anyone looking for an intro to San Francisco’s history. It’s also perfect if you don’t have too many days in the city but still want to learn more about it.
