Went to the Pier and Wharf for a walk and had coffee and just looked about. North Beach kind of overlaps with Telegraph Hill, Russian Hill and Fisherman's Wharf, but it's somewhat casual once you get away from the attractions like the Wharf and Pier...More

Great place to get Italian food as there are quite a few restaurants to choose from and each looks unique. There are also a number of bakeries, cafes, and shops. It is worth taking a slow stroll up and down Columbus and looking in the...More

Lots of awesome bars and Italian spots. It looks like a fun place to hang out and go out in. Reminds me of Europe.

One of San Francisco's best neighborhoods. But do not under any circumstances Dr. If you've got a car park at one of the main parking garages in Union Square or on Market Street, walk, or take over. This neighborhood is quintessential San Francisco on steroids,...More

This is by far the best part of San Francisco, in my opinion. Great restaurants. Great shops. Great parks. Great for walking. Great alleys. Steep hills. Beautiful churches. Spend at least four hours here to really just see it all. Longer if you are really...More

My hubby and I went here for our 30th anniversary...they never asked...and never acknowledged. We ordered an $85 bottle of wine only to find out you couldn't substitute taters for pasta, unless you wanted to pay an extra $10! What!? You're an Italian restaurant!! Meals...More

As the oldest in North America, San Francisco's
Chinatown is an exotic experience. A unique
neighbourhood decorated with colourful shops, historic
streetlights, hanging lanterns, and pagoda roofs
awaits behind the stone-carved dragon gates. Feast on
dim sum at the tea houses, or meet the locals who
gather at historic Portsmouth Square to play chess or
practice Tai Chi. Fish markets, produce stands,

I would suggest that you map out where you want to go. The Golden Gate Bridge is on the other end. The rest are close to North Beach.
