Chinatown, San Francisco, California

The largest Chinatown outside of Asia dates from California's Gold Rush in the mid-nineteenth century and feels deeply entrenched in the city. Right in the heart of San Francisco, Chinatown's alleyways and thoroughfares are an eclectic mix of Asian and American architecture. Although it is a major tourist destination, the district feels authentic and many of the shops and restaurants are aimed at locals, as much as visitors.
