“The Wharf is "touristy" admittedly but most 1st timers to SF like to visit here. The Boudin sour dough bread factory here, as well as restaurant (try the clam chowder in sour dough bread bowls) but fav thing to do is grab some fresh crab cups or sandwiches from the street stands (from some of the original fish companies.) Check out the several original fish restaurants (Scomas, Alitos, Franciscan) for some great seafood and a bit of history! Reservations are a must during the busy season for sure! If at the Wharf, walk to Ghiradelli Square for some chocolate (fav is a Hot Fudge Sunday with of course Ghiradelli chocolate fudge sauce!) For an additional activity, rent bikes at the Wharf and bike to/cross the Golden Gate Bridge.”

“Most major cities have a Chinatown, but San Francisco has four and the one on Grant Avenue is the biggest Chinatown outside of Asia as well as being the oldest in North America. The town is so big that is encompasses two hospitals, various parks and draws more visitors each year than the Golden Gate Bridge. If you are looking for authentic Chinese cuisine in San Francisco there is no point looking anywhere outside of the four Chinatowns to find real traditional Chinese food. If you are in the city during the Autumn Moon Festival you can visit this Chinese festival for free.”

Point of Interest
“Coit Tower has been standing at the top of Telegraph Hill since 1933. At the top of the tower is a viewing deck that gives 360 degree views of the city and the surrounding bay. The tower was named after Lillie Hitchcock Coit, she was a little eccentric and very wealthy. When she passed aways she left a substantial sum of money to the city and so this tower was built to honor her. You can go up the tower by elevator all year round and tickets can be bought from the nearby ticket shop.”

“Got to start lining up at 7:30 otherwise you will have to wait 90 minutes. Is it worth it? Depends on how hungry you get while waiting in line for 90 minutes. At that point you talk yourself into thinking its worth it otherwise you will feel like a fool.”

Book Store
“City Lights is THE quintessential San Francisco bookstore. It's not in this neighborhood (unfortunately) but I'd be there all the time if it was. This is the bookstore & publishing house owned by Ferlinghetti, who is celebrating his 100th birthday this year (2019). City Lights was the publisher for the Beat Generation, and continues its tradition of publishing literature in translation, poetry, and political theory. They are one of the most culturally significant stores of any kind in the country, influencing whole movements. If you pass through Chinatown or North Beach, consider making a stop here.”
