View From The Top

Tue, June 13th

Permits for all new buildings in San Francisco mandate areas that are open and free to the public. When space next to the building is available, colorful little “parks” have been planted, and if no space is adjacent, a garden on the rooftop offers beautiful “views from the top.” With Craig Smith as our guide, this popular tour explores a variety of small public parks and rooftop gardens not frequently visited or easily noticed. This walking tour visits several buildings and locations in the downtown, financial, and Embarcadero Center and requires use of elevators and escalators. Enjoy an included lunch mid-day at Swiss Louis Restaurant on Pier 39

Take the Train to Oakland

Thu, July 20th

An enjoyable day out in Oakland! Board Amtrak’s Capitol Corridor for the short ride to Jack London Square. Lunch is included on the water at Kincaid’s. A short distance away is the Oakland Museum of California, featuring an exhibit of the photographs of Dorothea Lange. Through the lens of her camera, Lange documented American life with riveting, intimate photographs that showed the major issues of the times. From documenting the plight of Dust Bowl migrants during the Great Depression to magnifying the grim conditions of incarcerated Japanese Americans during World War II, Lange’s photographs demonstrate how empathy and compassion – focused through art – can trigger political action. View approximately 100 photographs, including vintage prints, unedited proof sheets, personal memorabilia, and historic objects. Return to Sacramento in the late afternoon by coach.
