Y’all know I love road trippin’, right? Well, Trusted Tours and Attractions is offering an antique twist to road trips just a few miles north of me in San Francisco! They’ve got a great deal on Mr. Toad’s Antique Nighttime Car Tours of San Francisco ($40 for adults, $30 for seniors, students or military, and $20 for kids (5-12, under 5 is free)). This is the only way to discover the history of San Francisco in style. Mr Toad has a half dozen antique touring cars including a 1912 Rambler, a 1918 Packard and a 1929 Model A. My favorite though is the 1924 White Yellowstone Bus. It’s amazing touring The City in the same vehicle generations of visitors rode in to tour Yellowstone National Park. In true San Francisco style, all of Mr. Toad’s antique touring cars are enviromentally friendly, as well – they run on clean burning propane! This 80 minute road trip through San Francisco is full of delightful and informative commentary from the tour guideswho are willing and able to share all kinds of details on San Francisco’s historical past as well as highlighting all the famous movies that were filmed in and around this picturesque city by the bay. While you can’t see everything in San Francisco in a mere hour and a half, Mr. Toad’s comes close-

  • North Beach: San Francisco’s “Little Italy”
  • Jackson Square: The former Barbary Coast is now a charming antique district
  • Financial District: Wall Street of the West
  • The Embarcadero: The World Famous Ferry Building and historical piers
  • Chinatown: The largest Chinatown outside of Asia
  • Nob Hill: Elegant hotels, Cable Cars, and a hill that none of the tour buses can get up
  • Pacific Heights: Beautifully restored Victorian mansions and Mrs. Doubtfire’s house
  • Presidio: The former military base turned local community
  • Crissy Field: Breathtaking view of the Golden Gate Bridge
  • Cow Hollow: The dairy farm turned boutique fashion area
  • Fisherman’s Wharf: Home of Ghirardelli Square and the famous Boudin Bakery
