Salty ocean air and ever-present fog blanket the Sunset District. Undaunted by dampness, rows of modest stucco homes share the Outer Sunset’s mostly quiet streets with locally beloved produce co-ops, casual restaurants, and cheeky cafes. This serene neighborhood feels far removed (and indeed takes some time to reach) from San Francisco’s city center. However, the Outer Sunset’s inviting green spaces and sandy shores make the misty adventure worth the time for urban beachcombers.See places to stay Save this neighborhood

We love the neighborhood and are surrounded by great neighbors. If you open the windows, you can hear the ocean at night. It's hard to believe downtown is only 20 to 30 minutes away by public transport."
