Hit the pavement for a guided exploration of San Francisco’s vibrant Castro neighborhood, delving into the area’s Gold Rush history, civil rights heritage, and proud LGBT community.

Meet your expert local guide beneath a waving rainbow flag and set out through the Castro. This neighborhood of broad avenues, colorful Victorian homes, and lively bars and restaurants is a hub of gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender culture. Learn about the area's early history, and walk in the footsteps of celebrated civil rights leader Harvey Milk with a visit to the camera shop that was his campaign headquarters.

Pause before the Pink Triangle Memorial Park, which is dedicated to homosexual people persecuted during World War II, and be moved by the AIDS Memorial Quilt, which celebrates individuals whose lives were lost to the disease—the Hope For World Cure mural nearby depicts the epidemic in images.

Check out some iconic San Francisco landmarks, like the Twin Peaks Tavern—this historic building was one of the first bars in the country where gay people could gather openly—and the ornate Castro Theater. End your tour at the Rainbow Honor Walk, a sidewalk artwork tribute to past heroes and heroines of the LGBT movement.
