SAN FRANCISCO'S GAY VILLAGE
FROM TOP TO BOTTOM

FOOT! fun walking tours is proud to present Come Out to the Castro: San Francisco’s Gay Village from to Bottom, a fun history walking tour that explores the City’s proud and campy queer community.  

Learn about the history of the neighborhood and Gay culture in San Francisco from the Gold Rush times to the present. This two-hour romp winds its way through one of the City’s most famous districts—mostly because it can’t go straight!

In the late 1960s, the Castro district suddenly became the cultural and spiritual center of the Gay universe. How did Eureka Valley, a quiet working class neighborhood, become synonymous with Gay pride?

Find out the answer—plus lots more—while visiting one of the nation’s most distinctive and tolerant neighborhoods: the Castro. You might even see some of the neighborhood's colorful characters, like Dykes on Bikes—or perhaps some Chaps in Chaps!
