Alamo Square is one of the most photographed locations in all of San Francisco.

Although North Beach may be known as “Little Italy”, it has ethnic diversity.


Welcome to S.F.!

San Francisco is known as a sightseeing city. Tourists come every year to see the wonderful neighborhoods San Francisco has to offer. A couple of neighborhoods in S.F. that tourists really like to go to and see its fascinating culture are North Beach, Chinatown, and Alamo Square District.

North Beach, also known as “Little Italy”, is home to playgrounds, one very crooked street, and restaurants with delicious food. Although North Beach may be known as “Little Italy”, it has ethnic diversity, which is evident through its restaurants and bakeries. North Beach is conveniently located next to Chinatown and Fisherman’s Wharf. This neighborhood wasn’t always as beautiful as it is now because originally North Beach was actually a beach!

San Francisco’s Chinatown is one of the largest and oldest Chinatowns in North America. Chinatown is a major tourist attraction; this neighborhood attracts more visitors than the Golden Gate Bridge! Why the popularity? Because visitors expect something they won't find anywhere else. They expect to be stunned and enchanted with all that Chinatown provides, and of course get stuffed with great food, which they will. It is the densest neighborhood, not only in San Francisco, but also in the whole nation.

Alamo Square is a neighborhood and also a park. You may know this neighborhood by the row of Victorian Houses facing the park on Steiner Street with downtown in the background. The row of Victorian houses is also known as the “painted ladies.” Not only is it known as the “painted ladies”, but also the “postcard row” because it was put on postcards so many times. Alamo Square is one of the most photographed locations in all of San Francisco.
