Chinatown – Pass through the ornate Dragon Gate, shop for treasures, do a tea tasting, watch fortune cookies being made, and sample authentic dim sum.

North Beach/Little Italy – Spend some money at Lawrence Ferlinghetti’s City Lights bookstore, catch a performance of Beach Blanket Babylon, and have a brandy-spiked cappuccino at Tosca.

Fisherman’s Wharf – Indulge in a sundae at Ghirardelli Square, chat with the sea lions at Pier 39, climb aboard historic ships and submarines, and partake in a sourdough chowder bowl.

The Mission District – Tour the murals, visit Mission Dolores, discover the curious world of Paxton Gate, and enjoy a famous Mission burrito.
