I have multiple friends who are teachers at Ulloa Elementary, one of the schools in the Sunset on 2650 42nd Avenue, San Francisco, California (415) 759-2841. The school was selected in 2011 for National Blue Ribbon Distinction. ... more

If you can deal with the fog and a climate that’s cooler than other San Francisco neighborhoods, the Inner Sunset is an ideal neighborhood to live in, especially if you donâ€t have a car. Everything you need is within a few blocks - tons of awesome restaurants that represent so many different cuisines, comfy coffee shops, great bars, and fabulous little shops that are great places to buy gifts. You’ve also got your standard drug store, hardware store, beauty store, etc, and there are plenty of dry cleaners, and hair salons to choose from. There’s also a nice farmer’s market every Sunday.

Being near Golden Gate Park is another reason to love the Inner Sunset. You’re just a few blocks away from the De Young museum and the Academy of Sciences, the Shakespeare Gardens, Tea Gardens, Rose Garden, and Stow Lake. The park can get busy on weekends, especially when the weather is good, or if there’s a concert going on (another benefit – some are totally free) , but during the week it’s also a great place to jog or ride your bike.

Inner Sunset is also very safe. There are a few regular homeless folks who hang around and ask for cash, but they are polite and don’t make you feel uncomfortable. There are a lot of families here and people of all ages, and even at night I feel very safe.

Tons of muni lines also come through so it's easy to get to any other area of the city.

Long transit waits and expensive cab fares can make this neighborhood feel isolated from the rest of San Francisco. If you are looking for a "city-living" experience, this might not be the place. Many restaurants close early relative to elsewhere in the city, and nightlife is limited to a handful of dive bars and Irish pubs. ... more
