Discovering San Francisco: The Story and History Behind Famous Sites and Landmarks (Virtual)
Mon June 15, 2020 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Why does Chinatown look the way it does? Why is the Palace of Fine Arts there? Why is the Golden Gate Bridge red? Is Coit Tower really designed to look like the nozzle of a fire hose? Just like most New Yorkers see the Statue of Liberty all the time and yet know little of its history, it’s easy to live in San Francisco and not know the story behind familiar sites. In this presentation, local tour guide Reed will share the “what” and “why” of Chinatown, the Palace of Fine Arts, the Golden Gate Bridge, Coit Tower, and other places that make San Francisco unique. Reed has been leading private tours of San Francisco for years via his company Small Car, Big Time Tours.
