"North Beach: Real Charm" North Beach Tip by kidkilowatt
North Beach, San Francisco: 57 reviews and 71 photos
Of all the neighborhoods in San Francisco, North Beach was my favorite. It was a beautiful co-mingling of a cool, hipster scene with old world, Italian American charm. North Beach was the center of the beat movement and there still stands today the City Lights Bookstore, which served as a hang out for beat poets such as Ginsberg and Ferlinghetti. Check it out at 261 Columbus Avenue, buy a book, and then head to one of the many Italian coffee shops that dot Columbus street, and spend some time reading. North Beach has lots to offer and is a really fun place to spend the afternoon.
