Created in 1938 for the Golden Gate International Exposition, the "Follow the Seagull" 49-Mile Scenic Drive highlights many of San Francisco’s historic and iconic landmarks. Popular San Francisco guide Craig Smith will regale us with the history and stories of Union Square, Japan Town, Chinatown, Ghiradelli Square, Presidio National Park, Fort Point, the Golden Gate Bridge, the San Francisco Zoo, Lake Merced, Golden Gate Park, Mission Dolores, and more. We will disembark at two scenic viewpoints - Land's End, for sweeping vistas of the ocean, headlands and Golden Gate, and Twin Peaks, for a panoramic 360-degree view of the city. We will enjoy lunch at the Park Chalet restaurant with its views of Golden Gate Park.
