Not masses to see so don’t book out too much of your day, maybe combine with the cable car museum as your walking back into the city. It’s ammusing to watch the stark realisation in everyone’s faces as it becomes apparent how easy they are...More

This store is in a small back alley in Chinatown. There's a line to get in and you can actually see them making the fortune cookies-but there's really not much to see and you won't spend more than 5 to 10 minutes there. But you...More

This factory was nice to see and the ladies let you take pictures. The parking was hard to find, and you walk up or down. You see the laundry hanging from the buildings and many people live in the area. We bought some cheap Keds...More

Down a little alley in Chinatown you find the Fortune Cookie Factory. Watch as fortune cookies are being made in front of your eyes and buy some to take with you for later. A fun little treasure in San Francisco.
