Additional Information


What do Tai Chi and Chinese Chess have in common? They're both actively practiced at Portsmouth Square, a prominent plaza in San Francisco's Chinatown district. Children frolic in the playground, paying no mind to the history of the place made apparent by monuments like the Robert Louis Stevenson monument or the marker where Commander Montgomery first raised the American flag in San Francisco back in July 9, 1846. Today, Portsmouth Square is a hub for the Chinese community, hosting the Chinatown Night Market Fair every Saturday from the end of July to October.
