Alameda Historical Walking Tour II

Alameda is an architecturally and historically rich community with over 10,000 buildings constructed prior to 1930 including over 3000 Victorian-era homes as well as over 1000 historic buildings. Besides Victorian-era architecture, another era left its mark here-the Roaring 20s. This era allowed those were once not able to afford a house the opportunity to live the American Dream. Join us for a 1A, leisurely walking stroll through some of Alameda’s neighborhoods where we’ll stop and view many of these homes focusing on Bungalows in Tudor, Craftsman and Mediterranean styles and get to know a little more about the history of Alameda along the way.
Meet at Lincoln Park (at High St and Santa Clara St) by 11:30 for a picnic lunch followed by a prompt 12:30 departure. Upon our return join us at High St Café for a pre St. Patrick’s day Guinness, Irish Coffee or other libation. Bring lunch, liquids, sun protection and comfortable walking shoes. Sorry, pets will have to stay at home.

Note: This event will be limited to 15 people. Firm RSVPs only to hike leader. Rain cancels hike, contact hike leader if uncertain.

    I will probably be late and skip the lunch part of the meet up but looking forward to the walk at 12:30.

    We will meet in the Park, close to the High Street entrance. The park is not that big and it ought to be easy to spot the group. Other than the parking lot near the Fernside entrance there is plenty of street parking, in and around High St.

    At this point we have had no cancellations so we will plan on scheduling another walk in the near term future for those not able to join us this time.

    Remember you must contact leader directly. The outing is currently full, but you can get yourself on a waiting list.

      Yes, Lincoln Park has a parking lot not accessible by High Street but on the other side of the park from Fernside Blvd.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
