This is a city with a rich literary history and home to several of the world’s best bookshops, including Green Apple Books in the Richmond district and City Lights in North Beach. Lovers of Armistead Maupin’s Tales of the City can take a self-guided tour. If you want to walk through North Beach, the area favoured by the Beat generation, there is enough information online for self-guided tours or you can get a tour through the Beat Museum.


Russian Hill and North Beach These are two of the prettiest (and hilliest) areas in San Francisco.
