Walking Tour of Mission Dolores Neighborhood

One of the oldest neighborhoods in the city, the tour shows the local culture, such as the native people, the first settlers, the defense of the residents to save the area from the 1906 earthquake, and much more!

Lindy in the Park

26 years of free outdoor swing dancing. The event takes place only if the weather is favorable. Swing dance beginners are taught in the afternoon and veterans start dancing in the morning. All the DJs who play Lindy in the Park are volunteers. The more variety of DJs, the more variety of music.

Where: classes take place in Golden Gate Park between 8th and 10th Avenue, San Francisco.

Time: from 11 am to 2 pm. Click here for more information.

Roller Disco Party

Another totally FREE event at Golden Gate Park. The history with roller skating comes from the end of the XIX century, because since that time people started a place in the city just to practice the sport. The habit continued and from the XX century on, those who couldn’t afford to buy a skate could rent one.

The skating fever occurred in the 70s and 80s, but for sport lovers today, it is religious to meet on Sundays. If you are a beginner and are curious, just show up at the park and there will always be someone willing to teach you some steps of the roller disco dance.

Fun is guaranteed, and for FREE!

Where: Golden Gate Park, skate park at 6th Avenue and Kennedy Drive, San Francisco.

Time: from noon to 5pm. Click here for more information.
