I love living in the Outer Sunset because it is a great place full of love and happiness where anyone can live. I have met great people here who all make me enjoy life. The Outer Sunset is home to many great schools and plenty of places to get jobs which helps love living here. There is something always to do, such as eating at the many great restaurants, interacting with great neighbors , surfing, fishing, and more. The many shops here are very unique with many of the locals observing the Outer Sunset identity through showing and selling beach items and local clothing and music. There is a lot of diversity with people willing to express their culture freely. Close to the beach and Golden Gate Park along with many playgrounds, walking trails, and places to bike ride the Outer Sunset is the best place to be.

The Outer Sunset is very peacefully and quiet. I have never felt unsafe within my neighborhood and I often find myself leaving at night with no concerns. The Outer Sunset has a variety of stores and places to go to. My favorites being all food and drink stores. My neighbors are extremely kind and welcoming, never have I gotten into an issue with them. Overall the Outer Sunset has amazing views, areas, and is very diverse.
Overall, it's a great place to live. The outer sunset is quiet, relatively safe and it is very easy to find parking when compared to the rest of San Francisco. The only downside would be the lack of entertainment. There are many good restaurants but everything closes early and there is no nightlife. Most of the people who live here are families. However, those things are the trade offs of having a safe neighborhood.
