Join us on August 7th, 2024, for a tour highlighting the work of master architect Frank W. Stevenson in Baja California. This tour, conducted by historians in conjunction with the Latinos in Heritage Conservation Conference, Congreso 2024, promises an enriching experience. The Tijuana-Ensenada tour will depart from downtown San Diego to downtown Tijuana, Playas de Tijuana and Ensenada.

We will visit two places designed by Stevenson in Tijuana: La Comercial in Second Street and the Foreign Club in Avenida Revolución. We will see the Francis Hotel and the Hotel Caesar’s, where the Caesar’s Salad was made famous. The tour will visit Playas de Tijuana and stop at the border fence next to view the prominent landmark, the Bullring by the Sea, and view the Lighthouse. The tour will take us to Ensenada and stop at the Spanish Revival Abelardo Rodriguez house designed by Stevenson in 1930 for a lunch and site visit. Our last stop will be the Spanish Revival Hotel Riviera where the margarita drink was invented.

The tour will return to San Diego between 6 PM and 7 PM, depending on border traffic.
