Located on the southeast side of San Francisco, Visitacion Valley is a smaller community that's known for being close to the Cow Palace and the former 49ers stadium, Candlestick Park. It's one of the cheaper neighborhoods to rent, but don't count it out! Visitacion Valley is filled with sunny days, cheap food, and nice people and families who have been living here for decades.

Visitacion Valley is a neighborhood that is close by to an elementary, middle school and high school. People who does not live around here may call it the “ghetto” or a dangerous place to live in but I actually feel very safe living here. It is also a very diverse neighborhood with different races and cultures. There are also police patrolling around the area in the day and night time so there aren’t a lot of accidents happening. I personally don’t think it’s a big problem to live around here.
I live in this neighborhood and find it to be family oriented, peaceful and safe. The weather is very sunny compared to the rest of San Francisco and you get stunning views of the Bay and San Bruno hills. There are some great restaurant options on San Bruno Avenue. In terms of transportation, it is very easy to get on the Freeways (101, 280) and also access multiple bus lines and MUNI (T-line) to get into downtown SF
