North Beach

The name is a bit misleading (there’s no beach in sight), but this neighborhood proves you don’t need coastline to be lively, engaging, and charming. A touch of European romance, a majestic church, and a tower to climb for top-notch photo ops make North Beach a special corner of the city. There are tons of easy-to-find beautiful hotels in the heart of North Beach, making this the perfect place to spend a few days. Since it’s the Italian quarter, this is where to stop for an authentic taste of Italy.
