Outer Sunset Reviews

103
All Categories
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.
I have been living in the same area for the past five years and I have to say that I have never had any problems with any neighbors or locals. This area is great for individuals and families who love their pets because there are many dog parks and for the most part the city is pet-friendly. San Francisco has a good sense of community involvement whether it is demonstrated in the the arts, music, culture, and sports!
