Discover the Fascinating Culture of Chinatown

Visit a temple, an herbal shop, art galleries, antique stores and more in Chinatown when hunting for unique treasures! Chinatown is packed with distinctive Chinese architecture, culture, and cuisine. Visitors can be served dim sum any day of the week, then browse through shops that specialized in fine silks, inlaid furniture, and Asian art. For many, the best way to approach Chinatown is as an urban adventure — not into China, but into a distinct culture both Chinese and American. As the first established Chinatown in America, the area quivers with cultural history, woven into a now-modern and bustling community. Buses roar through the streets labeled in both English and Chinese. Shoppers crowd the sidewalks. Everywhere, Chinatown restaurants boast the best dim sum and noodles. Windows display rows of Peking duck. Come and discover this fascinating culture and shop till you drop!
