|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.
We will see the neighborhood sights including:
St Peter's and Paul's Church in Washington Square, The Barbary Coast, Columbus Ave, St. Francis of Assisi Church, Sentinel Building, The Hungry i, Broadway, City Lights Bookstore Tosca, Vesuvio's. We will see Janis Joplin's Grant Ave & Carol Doda's Condor Club. We'll see where Barbra Streisand, Lenny Bruce, Bill Cosby and Phyllis Diller got their starts. This fascinating tour will keep you spell bound by the colorful locals and stories of the colorful characters from times past.
Make sure you bring a camera as we will also be taking you to
a semi-secret place that has one of the best views in North Beach
and you don't have to climb to the top of Telegraph Hill to see it!
