Yes, WALKING SF's famous 49 Mile Scenic Drive has become a "thing"

San Francisco’s 49 Mile Scenic Drive was designed to show off the best of the City to visitors attending the 1939–40 Golden Gate International Expo. 75 years later, Kristine Poggioli and Carolyn Eidson walked the entire route.

They did it by dividing the route into 17 bite-sized walks.

The walking adventure launched them into a new healthy lifestyle and resulted in a combined 75-pound weight loss. Plus, they had a blast and discovered many new things about San Francisco.

They knew they had to share the fun so they researched the history along each mile of the Drive and turned their adventure into a turn-by-turn guidebook, cleverly titled: Walking San Francisco's 49 Mile Scenic Drive.

This lively presentation is filled with inspiration, visuals, quirky, unknown history, fun facts—and light refreshments!

Books— and those totally cool seagull signs—will be available for sale and signing (or at: walksf49.com)



With Special Guest Katharine Holland, who will teach us the secrets of Victorian Architecture.



Over a hundred people have accepted the challenge to "Walk the Drive" over a year. We all did it—so can you!

Guy is one of hundreds who have WALKED the entire route
