San Francisco Reviews

San Francisco is a wonderful place for sightseeing and food! I love atmosphere and weather. Its pretty easy to get around with public transportation and having everything close by. Some food restaurants are open late night, just in case you crave a late dinner. It’s a very tech savvy place so everything is literally one click away. I would love to see some changes with downtown San Francisco since there are a lot of homeless people on the street. The city should clean up and make more shelters for the homeless and housing for low income people. For the most part, San Francisco is clean, beautiful, and easy to get around.

San Francisco is filled with different neighborhoods which includes the Marina, Pacific Heights, North Beach, Castro and it goes on. San Francisco is diverse and beautiful. Each neighborhood has its own aspects. Union Square (downtown) is filled with job opportunities. Fairly easy to get a job out here.

North of San Francisco is also filled with job opportunities but is probably the most family friendly areas in San Francisco. There's the Marina which contains the beach, Crissy Fields, etc. Pacific Heights, known for its beautiful parks. Fisherman's Wharf is also family friendly where you can visit animals, ride a carousel, enjoy a penny arcade, etc.

For the college students, after classes you want to go out on the town? The Vision, Soma, and Sunset, are the best neighborhoods to go!

Although it's pretty expensive to live in San Francisco, they have easy public transportation, save money, it's a great place for all ages, it's diverse, and equal opportunities for everyone.
I've lived in San Francisco my whole life. This is, by far, the smallest "big city" that I think I've ever been to. We're only seven miles wide! But what San Francisco lacks in size, it makes up for with diversity, community, and great weather. There are so many different parts of this city that it's virtually impossible not to find your niche. We also have really great sports teams at the moment – the Warriors are great, the Niners are coming off a great end to last season, and the Giants... well they're figuring it out. Moving on. I also love the food here. Scoma's in Fisherman's Wharf? Awesome. Super Duper Burgers in the Marina? Also awesome. Lots of local favorites too – Joe's Ice Cream in the Richmond, Pasquale's Pizza, the list goes on and on. I love San Francisco, and really, who has an excuse not to?
