On our last trip to The City by the Bay, the GuideAdvisor team connected with a number of food and urban guides (including Lisa Rogovin, Beth Alyse, Tom Medin and Alexandra Kenin to name just a few) and learned there are 36 neighbourhoods that make up the city. Thirty-six! This isn’t like visiting Houston, Texas, where homogeneity reigns – this is new and exciting foods, ethnicities, sexualities, sights, sounds and entertainment around every corner. Most visitors only get to see the touristy Fisherman’s Wharf, Union Square or Chinatown areas of the city (not to mention Alcatraz and the Golden Gate Bridge) but there is so much more!
We also discovered the best places to eat in the city thanks to Lisa Rogovin of Edible Excursions. Take our advice and hire a guide to explore the delicious delicacies in such neighbourhoods as the Mission District, North Beach and Haight Ashbury.
