Chinatown is located in San Francisco, CA.
It is home to one of the greatest concentrations of Chinese culture. There are more Chinese restaurants and people here than anywhere else outside of China. The initial Chinese immigrants migrated to San Francisco in the 1850s. The first Chinese-only school opened its doors in San Francisco ten years later. Sometime in the 1740s, California created a set of laws intended to protect Chinese plus Japanese immigrants in the country. Early in the twentieth century, the first Chinese hospital was constructed to serve the medical needs of the Chinese population in the community. There are a great deal of historical venues in Chinatown that are worth visiting. The restaurants offer some of the best, traditional Chinese cuisine anywhere in the country. One of my favorite reasons to make the trip to San Francisco is the egg rolls in Chinatown. There is nowhere else in California or the whole country that sells egg rolls that taste as amazing as those in Chinatown. I live 2 and a half hours away from San Francisco. It’s a long drive and traffic is usually awful. I make a special trip whenever I am in the mood for egg rolls. Last weekend, I was feeling adventurous. I wanted to do something fun and different, so I asked a friend to join me. We drove all the way to the bay after work. I had decided to spend the weekend there. We devoted the first evening to Chinatown. We sampled different types of dishes from several vendors. There was no way I was missing out on the egg rolls. We booked a hotel nearby. The hotel was right in-between some cute little clothing shops and a cannabis dispensary. The next morning, we strolled the streets and shopped. We bought some very overpriced clothes and some very cheap weed. The clothes were not the greatest quality but the weed was excellent.
