North Beach-Chinatown

Could I walk from North Beach to Chinatown or do I need to take public transportation?

Yes, North Beach is adjacent to Chinatown. Public transit is often slower at certain times of the day than walking on Stockton St. between Columbus/Green and the Stockton Tunnel because of the traffic lights and the large quantities of passengers entering/exiting the buses. Grant St. is a better street for a stroll sometimes, but the side streets often offer some hidden gems such as tasty dim sum and stores sell giant incense packages that are very cheap.

I consider the walk from Union Square, though Chinatown via Grant or Stockton to Columbus Avenue in North Beach, and then down Columbus to Fisherman's Wharf, to be one of the best walks in the world.
