For some background: The Presidio has a rich history spanning back to the time of the native Ohlone people. The Spanish arrived in 1776 to establish the northernmost outpost of their empire in western North America. The Presidio fell under Mexican rule for 24 years before the U.S. Army took control in 1846. Over 148 years, the U.S. Army transformed ...

So it is not often that I feel the urge to write a review of a city. I dont think I have yet at least. However this is about a neighborhood. Talk about kinda random. But this place is one of my favorite haunts within one of the best cities in the world (outside of the politics, strictly speaking stuff ...

I personally really love the Downtown area of San Francisco. The people are always interesting, whether they be tourists or locals, and I always find something new to discover. There is also a nice gradient of themes across the entire district. For example, the Union Square area is obviously more saturated with tourists and tourist-related businesses. If you move more ...

Working in SoMa is awesome! There's a ton of interesting startups, in addition to delicious food trucks. Make sure to check out South Park.

Seals. And film. And T shirts. And good restaurants. And tourists. And docks. And crab. And sourdough bread. And tourists. And traffic. And film. And T shirts. And bars. And shops. And ... that's all I can think of. Enough?

One of the great urban parks, in my opinion. Golden Gate Park contains a lot -- sports fields, museums, botanical gardens -- which makes it great for return visits. I'm a big fan of the Japanese garden and the De Young Museum, but even just sitting somewhere on a grassy lawn and people watching is a good time.

Find the House of Nanking with a perpetual line out in front. See the Chinese flag flapping in the breeze. Exactly like walking the streets of Hong Kong.

South Beach, with its converted warehouses and brick facades, is somewhat reminiscent of the East Coast. Home of the Ballpark, numerous tech companies and popular restaurants, this posh area by the Bay represents the the loft-style lifestyle. While it can be fairly quiet at night, it’s hustling and bustling with businesspeople during the day.

The Financial District may be the only area of San Francisco that’s flooded with people in one moment and serene in the next. During business hours, this business hub blows up with the energy of power walking employees rushing between lunch, coffee and the office. When business hours end, and the sun starts to set in that beautiful San Francisco ...

Be VERY careful here. It can get sketchy and dangerous FAST.

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. ...

There was a time when the area across Yerba Buena Gardens was an empty lot devoid of construction. Thanks to the Contemporary Jewish Museum, the area here is spacious and beautiful. With benches to sit on and moving water, it's the perfect complement to what has become one of my favorite parks across the street. The area is full of ...

The Marina is a fantastic little neighborhood that sits on the north side of San Francisco between Fisherman's Warf and the Presidio. Chestnut St and Union St are teeming with shops and restaurants. It's very close to North Beach, the Lombard St Hill, Chinatown, the Palace of Fine Arts, and the Golden Gate bridge. The only drawback is that it ...

Civic Center may not be the cleanest, nicest, prettiest or sanest area in San Francisco, but amidst the panhandling and the guy who coughs so much you suspect him as patient zero in the pending bacteria apocalypse, there is plenty of fun to be had. In its heart, you have the gorgeous City Hall, a tribute to the American Renaissance ...

You can't come to San Francisco without taking a walk along the Waterfront. You don't have to necessarily go to Fisherman's Wharf, but walking along the waterfront to see the misty filled Golden Gate Bridge and boats will make you appreciate SF infinitely more.

Iconic Nob Hill is like a regal testament to the elegance of San Francisco. At its top rests Grace Cathedral, the city’s grandest church, alongside two of the most fantastic and beautiful hotels around. Riding the California-Van Ness Cable Car line up the steep California Street is an experience in and of itself. In the neighborhood’s lower area, you’ll find ...

Telegraph Hill is now mostly known to tourists for having Coit Tower - the lookout for 360 degree views of San Francisco. Whilst walking down Telegraph Hill, there are some spots with nice views of the bay to stop and appreciate. Next to Telegraph Hill is the popular North Beach/Little Italy area, which is plentiful in restaurants and bars to ...

Sometimes I feel like Lower Pacific Heights isn’t really its own neighborhood, as if it was created to separate the nicer side of Pacific Heights with the more down-to-earth. Regardless, it’s got great places to visit from Japantown to the lower half of Fillmore Street. Mostly neighborhoods, it’s a nice place to stroll, particularly at night around Japantown.
