San Francisco Neighborhoods

San Francisco, within its very finite boundaries, contains a seemingly infinite number of diverse worlds. They mix, spill into each other, and co-exist in ways that can be as breathtaking as the natural topography they cover.

    Good on ya’ NADA. You hit most of the neighborhoods, but here are a few more. The Sunset, as is the Richmond, is divided into Inner and Outer. Both Outers are the Avenues and just a stone’s throw away from the beach, the wonderful beer of The Beach Chalet and the true best views and marginal eats of The Cliff House. If you are at The Cliff House, go up the hill and back down to the old Sutro Bath Houses – incredible history. The Inner Sunset is full of local life, good food, particularly Ebisu’s Sushi. If you want to look at the most beautiful houses in the city, get over to Seacliff. Noe Valley has a fun hipster atmosphere. The Marina is one thing, but get over into Cow Hollow and Union street for some of the best shopping in the city and people watching. Don’t forget Pacific Heights for beautiful homes, great shopping and some wonderful restaurants. Hell – check out this link and you can figure it all out in one fell swoop –
