Experience San Francisco!

By Debbie Omariba  

Looking for a way to discover San Francisco while in town for JavaOne? Take the San Francisco Architecture Walking Tour. The 2.5 hour tour is led by Rick Evans, a local architecture expert. Learn about the historic buildings of San Francisco’s Financial District, while discovering hard to find rooftops gardens, and exploring landmarks. Additionally visit 4 of San Francisco’s Privately Owned Public Open Spaces (POPOS), the downtown area has 68 of them. Some points of interest include: 

  • The Hallidi Building known for it’s transparent glass wall. 
  • The Crown Zellerbach Paper Co first glass building built after the great depression and World War II.
  • The Shell building that was occupied by the Royal Dutch Shell oil company until the 1960s. 
  • The cross street where J-walking (diagonally crossing an intersection) is allowed. 

The tour typically begins either at 11am or 2pm. The tour will begin in the Lobby of the Galleria Park Hotel, 191 Sutter Street@Kearny. Make a reservation online or, call (415) 264-8824 if you are reserving on the same day of the tour.

If you are interested in talking a walking tour of other parts of San Francisco, take a look here. Locals volunteer and offer free (donations welcome) walking tours, be sure to check the schedule. Don't worry about over exercising since San Francisco is 7x7 it’s relatively easy to discover by walking.
