Visitors wonder what it is that makes SF unique. North beach is one of the quintessential neighborhoods. Old eateries, lazy people mixed with the avant guard make this an interesting visit any time.

This is one of my favorite neighborhoods in San Francisco. Here and there you can still find mo and pop shops where the owners still speak Italian. Don't miss City Lights Bookstore.

...and walking from one country to the next in half a block and eating (or viewing others eating) the great variety of continental foods.

... is here. Great restaurants. Cool shops. Lots of exercise... did I say great restaurants! We stayed at an apartment on Telegraph Hill, there was all types of restaurants around. If you go hungry, it's not because you couldn't find a place to eat. Its because you didn't try...

We loved exploring this area of San Francisco. We stopped and listened to some music in a great jazz club, did a little window shopping, ate a little Italian, and made the trek up to Coit Tower. This is a very cool area that appealed to us. I recommend picking a nice day and just strolling the streets.
