April is Shake & Bake Month
One of the biggest events in history happens to be one of the biggest events in the history of San Francisco, too: The Great Earthquake and Fire of 1906. It didn't put the City on the map—that was the Gold Rush—but it did prove to the world that San Francisco was "The City That Knows How," according to President Taft. After the destruction of 1906, people thought San Francisco was done for, but she came back, bigger and better than before, in typical only-in-San-Francisco fashion.
All month long, you can get discounted Shake & Bake tours
. Learn what was lost and how the City recovered, plus the usual fun and frivolity from our FOOT! history experts.
Proceeds from our Tour of the Month
will go to the San Francisco Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals
, a nonprofit in the City for almost 150 years. Their mission is to end animal abandonment, and you can learn more about the SF SPCA, or to donate directly to them, click here
