Head a little further down the hill to Cow Hollow, one of San Francisco’s lesser known but nonetheless striking, fascinating neighborhoods. In a city of rebels and runaways, Cow Hollow has epitomized rough-and-tumble Frisco creativity and individualism for over 160 years. This walking tour explores the history of the area, tracing its roots as a small dairy farming district in the mid-19th Century -- when Lombard Street was still at the shoreline -- to residential expansion in the shadow of the Panama-Pacific International Exposition in the early 20th Century all the way to the vibrant eclecticism that we see today.
