Washington Square Park
San Francisco, California

Join Watson Adventures on a unique scavenger hunt!

Explore the historic heart of the Barbary Coast and the immigrant culture that has made it thrive. In Jackson Square, you’ll uncover the history of the city’s oldest and handsomest buildings, survivors of the 1906 earthquake. In Chinatown, you may think you’ve left America as you hunt for answers among stores, herb shops, temples and even a fortune cookie factory. And in the North Beach section you’ll find Francis Ford Coppola’s headquarters and check out cafes and bakeries that will make you think you’ve gone to Italy. Along the way, you'll see the haunts of such writers as Jack Kerouac, Robert Louis Stevenson, Bret Harte and Amy Tan. You'll also be challenged not to overindulge on snacks ranging from Chinese moon cakes to gelato.

Price: $20 per person. Advance purchase is required via http://www.watsonadventures.com. Questions? Call 877-9GO-HUNT.
