The area

Neighborhood: Chinatown
As the oldest in North America, San Francisco's Chinatown is an exotic experience. A unique neighborhood decorated with colorful 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, tourist shops, jewelry stores, fortune tellers, temples and restaurants come together to create a world unto itself in this historic neighborhood.

This colorful and iconic street runs through the heart of Chinatown. There are lots of photo opportunities here. Look for the festive red lanterns, Dragon's Gate, and green tile roofs. Since we were there in the afternoon, Grant Avenue was in the shadows.

Grant Avenue is the central core of Chinatown in San Francisco. It has all you need in terms of restaurants, shops and street lanterns.

Grant is the main touristy Chinatown Street and then a street with some restaurants that turns residential as it heads further into North Beach.

Either way, you need to get off it to experience Chinatown and North Beach.

In Chinatown it is full of tourist shops etc. Check out Stockton for the real local shops and then the alleyways of Chinatown for a cuter experience.

Runs right through North Beach and Chinatown. In Chinatown you will find the lovely and important lion's gate, plus lots of interesting shops for souvenirs or just vegies. In North Beach there if food and drink plus a real neighborhood.
