Chinatown YMCA- Meet on sidewalk
SF Neon Chinatown Walking Tour 11/17
This tour includes some of the oldest signs in the city and although they may no longer light up, it is a treasure hunt to discover these beautiful signs hidden in plain sight. We save the best for last: the glowing signs are at the end of the tour at twilight.

Spend an evening with San Francisco Neon authors and photographers Al Barna and Randall Ann Homan. Tours feature local history with architectural and graphic design insights to San Francisco's unique legacy of surviving neon signs. Photography and a lively Q&A are encouraged. Be prepared to walk 2 miles for approximately 1.5 hours, with rest stops.
In proud partnership with Dear Community, the sponsors of "part 2" of this tour: Register for group appetizers and dinner at the New Woey Loy Goey restaurant on Grant and Washington, right after the neon tour. This is the first time we have partnered with group to include neighborhood dining on a neon tour!
