A beachy, park-lined village
The Sunset District is located in the west-central part of San Francisco and is bordered by Golden Gate Park and Ocean Beach. As the largest neighborhood in the city, locals often refer to the community in subsections: Inner Sunset for the eastern portion of the district and Central and Outer Sunset for the western part.
People are drawn to the neighborhood for a variety of reasons. It has an intimate, friendly vibe, a moderately priced real estate market compared to areas closer to downtown, and the bonus of being adjacent to Golden Gate Park and the Pacific Ocean. The friendly culture attracts families and people seeking a reprieve from the city. At the same time, the proximity to UCSF makes the area ideal for doctors and students. The vibrant restaurants and amenities make the area highly walkable and self-sustaining. And the N-Judah train line makes transportation easy.
The neighborhood feels very much like a village. It’s the kind of place where you end up walking the same streets to your favorite restaurants, parks, and beachside activities. This walk-everywhere mentality creates an intimate atmosphere that makes it easy to bond with neighbors or others within the community. A strong neighborhood association in the Inner Sunset, https://www.inner-sunset.org, helped launch the Farmer’s market on 9th Ave and, for many years, has promoted block parties - a great opportunity to play in the street and hang with your neighbors.
Sunset is home to many long-time residents who purchased their homes in the ’70s and new families who crave the casual atmosphere and great food after a long day of work. Many amenities are located along Irving Street, the 9th Avenue corridor, Golden Gate Park, UCSF, and the N-Judah train line. Local favorites include Pacific Catch, Lavash, Tartine, Martha Bros Coffee, Koo Sushi, and Arizmendi’s fresh-baked delights.
