See a dizzying variety of military architecture and learn about Spanish colonial settlers, 1906 earthquake and fire refugees, and the evolving culture of the U.S. Army from 1846 to 1995.
The highlights of this mile-long walk include the newly renovated Presidio Officers Club and Heritage Center, the Inn at the Presidio, the San Francisco Film Institute, and the new Presidio Visitor Center. The walk ends outside the Disney Museum on the main parade ground.
This easy two-hour stroll is also timed to end just before the Off the Grid food truck picnic begins, so you can bask in your post-history-tour glow while enjoying food, drink, and games.
Our favorite retired park ranger and historian, John Martini, will lead this tour. A native San Franciscan and lifelong researcher into the history of California and the American West, he is now an independent consultant specializing in historical research. He appears regularly on PBS, the History Channel, A&E Network, and National Geographic Channel.
