Back in the 1850s, the last place you'd want to be caught out at night was the barbaric Barbary Coast, with its infamous history of kidnappings, rampant prostitution and other unsavory goings-on. But now, you can get a firsthand view even after the sun goes down, thanks to Crooks Tour guide and noted San Francisco crime historian Paul Drexler. This walking tour of the nine-block area once known as the city's red-light district reveals storied spots like The Old Ship Saloon, where unwilling sailors were shanghaied into service; the Bull Run, known as the toughest bar in the city; the famed Bella Union Theatre; Madame Bertha's elegant brothel and much more. Vintage pictures and videos are projected onto building walls to complete your time-travel experience.
