We start at the 12th and Imperial trolley station and head east on Imperial Avenue. There is a lot of local color on Imperial Avenue not seen in Downtown although it's only a few blocks away. You can click on the pictures to make them larger.
We take a left on 25th St and head north to Golden Hill. Some of the landmarks along the way:
We cross Broadway and are in downtown Golden Hill. A good stop is at Panchita's bakery. Continue on to C street and take a right. Go to 30th and take a left. Now we're heading for South Park. In a few blocks, you'll find yourself on Fern. No worries. Stay on the main drag. It changes back to 30th at Juniper. Some of the sights of South Park:
Stan's Barber Shop really stans out! And there are a number of Laundromats, Laundramats, Laundermats, Laundrymats ... even Lavenderias! It seems to be one word in the English language that has no official spelling.
This whole trip only took a couple hours and we passed through several outlying neighborhoods of the city. We board the trolley for the trip home wherever that may be! Yep, you can take your bike on the trolley. No problem!
