Date & Time

Second Saturday of the month at 10:30 am. Please select your preferred date.

Attend one of our first ever MAIN STREET WALKS! Your early participation in this program will help us develop a new take on our signature place-based experiences! 
 

Far more than a history lesson, the walk shows us Main Street as a vibrant hub of the Ocean Park neighborhood, upon which its histories have been written. Your guide Mark Gorman, street historian and author of award-winning blog The Street Seen, will share stories that reflect years of walking with a curious gaze and which are informed by well-researched musings. 

Check-in: A docent will greet you at the Shotgun House, 2520 Second Street in Ocean Park. Check-in on the day of tour opens at 10:15 a.m. and the tour will start promptly at 10:30 a.m.

What to bring: Wear walking shoes, wear layers and a hat, sunscreen and water. 

Parking: Paid parking is available along Norman Place and Main Street. There is also two hour neighborhood parking on some blocks and larger lots along Main Street. During summer months, allow extra time for parking as we are located near the beach and there is a lot of competition. Better yet, take the bus or use a rideshare service.

Feel free to take photos on the tour. Tag us on Instagram and Facebook (@smconservancy), or help spread the word with a review on TripAdvisor!

We look forward to having you!
