"North Beach/Little Italy" North Beach Tip by newsphotogirl
North Beach, San Francisco: 57 reviews and 71 photos
I like this part of town. It has a lot of character. Most of the restaurants are good. Cute shops. Washington Square Park is across Union Street next to Saints Peter and Paul Church. It's a good location for people and dog watching.
Joe DiMaggio and Marilyn Monroe had their picture taken here after their City Hall wedding.
I brought my mother and step-father to Cafe Trieste for coffee and ended up talking to a local poet who pointed us in the direction of the Beat Museum just up the street. My step-father grew up during that era so he enjoyed the experience. Later we walked to the City Lights Bookstore, another hangout for Kerouac and Ginsberg.
