South Beach Reviews

1 review
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.
