Planning Your Time in Old Town and Uptown


Planning Your Time

It takes about two hours to walk through Old Town. Try to time your visit to coincide with the free daily tours given by costumed park staff. They depart at 11 and 2 from the Robinson-Rose House Visitor Center and take about one hour. If you go to Presidio Park, definitely consider driving up the steep hill from Old Town.

The highlight of an Uptown tour is exploring the heart of Hillcrest, located at the intersection of University and 5th avenues. Plan to drive or catch a bus between neighborhoods, then explore on foot.
