San Francisco's 49 Mile Scenic Drive was designed to show off the best of the City to visitors attending the 1939-40 Golden Gate International Expo. 75 years later, Kristine Poggioli and Carolyn Eidson walked the entire route, researched the history along each mile, and turned their adventure into a turn-by turn guidebook: Walking San Francisco's 49 Mile Scenic Drive. Their lively, inspiring visual program is filled with the new sites and strange stories they uncovered on the way.

Kristine Poggioli is a copywriter and storyteller with a B.A. in History from U.C. Berkeley. A native San Franciscan, she has given people tours around this city she loves her whole life.

Carolyn Eidson is an award winning filmmaker, comedian and passionate Weight Watcher Leader. As a San Francisco Scooter Girl she leads rides all over the city.
