Barbary Coast Trail Walking Tour: Silver Strikes, Earthquakes, and Lion Dancers

This tour by the San Francisco Historical Society explores an area devastated in 1906, then rebuilt into a world-class city. The tour starts at the Old U.S. Mint, a National Historic Landmark. We walk up to Union Square, site of Civil War-era rallies, then along Maiden Lane, a sunny street with a shady past. We visit the oldest Catholic cathedral in the West, and venture along the "street of the painted balconies" to the oldest Asian temple in America and the Clarion Music Center.


Meet at the Old Mint, Fifth and Mission Streets
