Event Details


Explore North Beach

All of our tours are rich in history and this neighborhood has a wonderful past to share. Italian fishermen, beatniks, hipsters, poets, comedians, The Barbary Coast, Gold Rush fortune seekers, Shanghai Dens, Joe DiMaggio, Carol Doda, Beach Blanket Babylon, nightime thrill seekers, sailors, socialists, all of these have helped shape North Beach into the rare gem that it is today.

Along with the history and wonderful food, North Beach has amazing sights to see: Washington Square Park, St. Francis of Assisi Church — a National Shrine, Saints Peter and Paul Church — where Joe Dimaggio and Marylin Monroe posed for wedding pictures, but were not permitted to marry in a Catholic ceremony; Coit Tower, Hotel La Boheme, Molinari's; cable cars, pottery shops, sidewalk cafes; Kerouac Alley, Vesuvio's, the North Beach Museum; The Beat Museum, City Lights Bookstore — where the beatniks read their work; the city's oldest saloo, Broadway and the Condor night club.
