Chinatown San Francisco

San Francisco boasts a plethora of options that cater to diverse interests.

Dating from its “sky’s the limit” Gold Rush era through its present-day standing as one of the most vibrant and beautiful cities in America, San Francisco has something to awe and delight every guest – whether it is your first visit or your thousandth. From the innovative arts scene, fashionable boutiques and world-class restaurants to the breathtaking San Francisco Bay views and day trips to places like Carmel, Mount Tamalpais, Muir Woods, Sausalito and Sonoma Wine Country, there are boundless opportunities to savor the good life, Northern California-style.  

Bask in breathtaking views and crisp salt air during a stroll across the iconic Golden Gate Bridge. Sample the best dim sum east of the Orient in Chinatown. Dig the funky and eclectic shops in Haight-Ashbury or dine on sumptuous Italian cuisine at a red-check-clothed ristorante in North Beach. Hitch a cable car ride to Fisherman’s Wharf, try not to go stir crazy on Alcatraz Island or soak up the neon nightlife in the Castro. Just be sure to bring a jacket no matter what time of year you visit. Depending on which San Francisco historian you ask, it was either Oscar Wilde or Mark Twain who said, “the coldest winter I ever spent was summer in San Francisco.”
