CHINATOWN, San Francisco: 28 reviews and 37 photos
Favorite thing: Chinese New Year is usually during February, normally the rainiest month of the year in San Francisco. Although there's a low chance of a heavy downpour on the Chinese New Year celebrations and parade, parade participants often plan for the worst by wearing clear plastic rain gear, having weather proof canopies where possible, and then the streets become overly crowded with umbrellas. Actually, along narrow Grant Avenue, the main thoroughfare in Chinatown, can be navigated without an umbrella much of the time because of the overhanging canopies of the shopkeepers. A hooded jacket is more practical than an umbrella for the street faire activities, but an umbrella will serve nicely to watch the parade, which goes along the broader avenue of Kearny Street.
