North Beach
I'm so tired, I think I'll take a nap on the tranquil lawns of Washington Square. There's a statue of Benjamin Franklin here, donated by a wealthy teetotaler dentist named Cogswell. He had the odd idea that building enough water fountains in San Francisco would cure the city's thirst for booze. I guess he got that one wrong!
