Like many people who live in or visit San Francisco, I really love this city. One of my favorite (free) things to do is taking advantage of the different guided walking tours City Guides (funded by the SF Public Library and other patrons) has to offer each month.

A few weeks ago I went on the Victorian San Francisco tour, which started literally a block away from my apartment. The tour group met on a street corner in Lower Pacific Heights and we embarked on a 2-hour journey through the history of the neighborhood and an in-depth look at the architecture around us.

I love the intricate detail. Sometimes it pays to stop and take a closer look.

This photo below is of a house that was built by a woman who’s sister had planned to build an identical house next to hers (which is why it looks like it’s been sliced in half), but her sister’s house was never built.

Have you been on any City Guides walking tours? I highly recommend them. Be sure to check out their website!
