Quiet, safe areaâ€“home to mostly families and students. If you can find an in-law in this area, the rent is usually very reasonable, and you usually will develop a good relationship with you landlord. Ocean is about 8 blocks away, and the Great Highway is a wonderful running trail and gateway to Golden Gate Park. I highly recommend this area to those who are outdoorsy, love to surf, or have a dog. If you like to walk, you can find a few markets, cafes and dive bars on various streets. Another great area for SF State students because there is fairly reliable transportation to the campus, and you can get far away enough from campus to get away from school. The L-Taraval is roughly a 3-block walk, the 48-Quintara bus to the east side of the city is a block away, and the 29-Sunset that goes to SF State is roughly 4 blocks away.
