But no matter the city’s attempt at reinvention, history lingers on the Embarcadero, too. A place that especially warms my heart is Red’s Java House. One of the best dives in the city, Red’s has been around since the 1930s and has survived a couple of fires and the 1989 earthquake to serve delicious and inexpensive burgers, hot dogs, and beer in a casual setting filled with character. It goes without saying that San Francisco is known for progress, but it’s defiantly old-school and audacious about its roots, too, and SOMA embodies that juxtaposition perfectly.

Another alley, Belden Place, is much more epicurean, and probably San Francisco’s closest thing to European dining al fresco. This hidden alleyway with its globe lights bobbing under the stars is my favorite spot to spend one of San Francisco’s rare and wonderful warm summer nights. 54 SEE SAN FR ANCISCO DOWNTOWN AND UNION SQUARE 55 56 SEE SAN FR ANCISCO DOWNTOWN AND UNION SQUARE 57 NORTH BEACH I love history-soaked North Beach, considered San Francisco’s Little Italy. In the late nineteenth century, thousands of Italian immigrants made their way to San Francisco and settled here.

A vast farmers’ market selling locally grown organic produce is held here three days a week, and the length of the building’s long, arched corridor brims with every food you’d ever want to sample. From Market and California Streets, the cable cars ride up and over the hills through the canyons of towering skyscrapers of the Financial District. I like to hop off at Powell Street at the very top of Nob Hill and change cars to whoosh back down past Victorians and hotels into Union Square, San Francisco’s shopping mecca.
