Check Out Chinatown
Rich in history and culture, San Francisco’s Chinatown is an overwhelming shock to the senses. Although just a short drive from Alpine Inn & Suites, once you set foot in Chinatown you will feel as if you’ve travelled to a foreign land. Enter on Grant Avenue near Bush Street through the ornate Chinatown Gate and start your trip browsing the souvenir shops for trinkets and cool imports. Visit Chinatown landmarks like the oldest Taoist Temple in the U.S., the Tien Hau Temple, above Grant Avenue on the alley known as the Street of Painted Balconies. After sight seeing, have an authentic San Francisco Chinatown lunch at one of the many eateries including R & G Lounge for specialties such as the salt-and-pepper crab. And lunch wouldn’t be complete without a signature Fortune Cookie from the Golden Gate Fortune Cookie Factory, where 20,000 fortune cookies are made daily, folded by hand! After your long day in "China", come back home to Alpine Inn when your comfy room is waiting you.
