The outer sunset is a residential neighborhood perfect for families, students, and visitors. The outer sunset is quiet and safe enough for parents to raise their children. It is decked with delicious restaurants along Judah and Taraval for residents and visitors alike. With Ocean Beach lined up against the west end of the Sunset and internationally known Golden Gate Park on the northern end, the Outer Sunset provides just enough quiet and adventure for visitors and residents.

I LOVE the Outer Sunset. It's still within San Francisco, but it doesn't feel like a huge anonymous city. It feels like a neighborhood with hidden treasures of coffee shops and galleries, and being able to walk to the beach, and people greet you on the street, and the sunsets are beautiful, but so is the fog... It's just wonderful out here. I love it so much.
The weather is nice, foggy and partly cloudy, on most days with a sunny day once in a while. There is a great transportation system and you can get anywhere with MUNI
