South Beach Reviews

2 reviews
I've lived in various parts of SF and South Beach is my favorite. I find that it's got something for everyone.

- Abundance of restaurants & cafes from food trucks to Michelin stars, and everything in between. Plus every cuisine type imaginable.
- Ideal location to getaround by driving, rideshare, walking and/or e-scooter. Near freeways, Bay Bridge, public transportation.
- Nearby grocery stores - Safeway, RJs, Whole Foods, Woodlands, Trader Joe's Target.
- Activities are in close proximity - Ferry Building, SFMOMA, Yerba Buena, Moscone, baseball and basketball/concert stadium, Westfield Mall, Embarcadero Center stores, free tennis/basketball/volleyball courts.

South Beach is a nice safe neighborhood, close to downtown San Francisco for convenient access to all that is offered there, while still being a little more quiet. The area is mostly residential, so some may find it lacking in stores, although there are several restaurants and a few bars. Living in South Beach you are in close proximity to the Bay Bridge, AT&T Park, and the Caltrain station.
