A 40-minute Muni ride from downtown, Ingleside flies under the radar. But with new shops and apartment buildings on Ocean Avenue, that may not last.

The colorful homes stacked in the quiet hills above the Castro enjoy views that stretch from downtown to the Golden Gate Bridge.

Way out in the city’s fog belt, locals walk from tidy rows of homes to the neighborhood parks, the shops on Taraval, or down to the beach.

#9 Inner Sunset →

These blocks south of Golden Gate Park are mostly filled with homes, but a lively cluster of shops and restaurants keeps locals happy and well fed.

Students like the low-ish rents and short walk to City College and SF State from these blocks. And a nearby BART stop is a real draw for commuters.
