Awesome SF Holiday Gift:
San Francisco’s 49 Mile Scenic Drive officially opened on Sept. 14, 1938
San Francisco’s 49 Mile loop-trail around the city was created as part of the 1939-40 Golden Gate International Exposition held on newly created Treasure Island. Designed to show off the city’s most famous landmarks and varied neighborhoods, it became an instant hit. Visitors, locals, motorists, cyclists—and now urban hikers—have been using the trail to explore San Francisco ever since. [read full history here]
This gorgeous, retro, fun San Francisco adventure is having a 3-year 80th anniversary. Come rediscover this City gem.
