    City Lights Bookstore is located on Columbus Street and close to Little Italy. It is a traditional old fashioned book store with real paper books!

    That’s what the sign says. While the sticks-and-bricks is closing, the online store continues to be available. The proprietor is very friendly. If you enjoy environments with lots color, you will most certainly enjoy this space. There is a lot of interesting merchandise available here.

    Because I was alone and not with a tour group, this was more of a shopping experience than anything else. That said, it was interesting to see two ladies working and note the alleyway where the shop is lactated. Fresh fortune cookies taste good!

    This is the city's major artery, although traffic control policies make it confusing as to which vehicles can use it. I just walk and it is practical for connecting many neighborhoods. Part of the street has grand architecture, part is boring. And as you go west you pass through residential areas and end up on top of Twin Peaks where the views are supert.

    Christmas ideas .
    Affordable. A little of traveling with your mind once you are at Xela!
    Lovely atmosphere. Great selection of incense, palo santo etc. The jewelry is so different from what you see around.
    Thank you .

    Very interesting experience about the different types and uses of tea. There were a lot of different tea pots, diffusers, and sets for purchase

    I love a great old used bookstore and Green Apple is exactly one of those. Their main store is on Clement and their newer one is on 9th Ave. Although both have a very different feel from each other, both are great to browse, get lost in stories, and buy from.

    Very sad to see most businesses closed. There were only two restaurants open. The rest was all shut down, boarded up. You could so so much with it. Had chowder at The Chowder House, good.

    The classic Italian deli in the middle of North Beach. It is an historic place with good food, both prepared as well as products you can take home. Old fashioned and it does not change.

    It's a pretty fancy store, a San Francisco classic. I recommend as a place to buy gifts for friends you care about. The quality here is very high.

    I find it a delight to make return trips to Britex Fabrics in San Francisco They have some of the best fabrics and a wide selection to choose from. Its close to the Union Square area of San Francisco.
