Back in ’98, I packed my bags and left the comforts of my East Bay suburbia home to start my new college life in San Francisco. I was excited. I was anxious. All at the same time. And even though I didn’t know what experiences lay ahead of me, one thing I did know was that I was going to learn everything I could about The City – the food, the (sub)culture, and nightlife – and have a good time doing it. So, from the many late nights exploring Muni tunnels to making our way up Turtle Hill, in my 7 years living there, I can say that I’ve had a lot of great memories and experiences living in San Francisco. Maybe a few I wish to forget, but overall, a really fun time just being in San Francisco.
Nowadays, I still make it a point to make my way up North and see what’s new and changing in The City. That’s why I was intrigued by the Detour app. For me, someone who has already experienced San Francisco, it allows me to explore San Francisco all over again in a whole new way. And I like that. For the new folks just making their way out to San Francisco? Well, let’s just say this could’ve been useful to me when I first moved out. Check it out:
Detour is a brand new way to experience the world. Gorgeous audio walks in San Francisco that reveal hidden stories, people and places all over SF. Each hour-long Detour takes you at your own pace, your own schedule, alone or synced with friends.
