Once a run-down, forgotten corner beneath a freeway and between downtown, the theater district, and the Haight, this neighborhood found new life after the most recent big earthquake destroyed the overpass/freeway exit that defined this area. Now it's a thriving center for trendy, chic, and alternative shopping; innovative upscale restaurants; and civic projects. With the personality of the Mission and the refinement of the Marina, it's become one of the more interesting neighborhoods in SF.

Maybe I'm a little biased since I live here, but I think this up-and-coming neighborhood has some of the best of what San Francisco has to offer: mom-and-pop stores full of character, classic and colorful victorian homes, quirky restaurants and lush green parks. It's also very central, within walking distance to the upper Haight, Civic Center, Mission and Castro/Upper Market. It's also not overly saturated with tourists (yet).

Hayes Valley is one of the few neighborhoods that strikes the balance between hip, lush and sophisticated. Both upscale and modest food and drink options are present, and the shopping boutiques here rival those of any other neighborhood. On a sunny day, Hayes Valley is simply gorgeous. The occasional street fair offers an additional reason to visit this much-loved neighborhood.
