    San Francisco Reviews

    San Francisco is a historical city with plenty of touristic landmarks to visit. What I love about this city is its diverse community and friendly environment. People are very open minded and it feels like a welcoming environment. Small businesses are able to thrive due to the curiosity of San Franciscans who enjoy trying new types of food. You can literally find small local businesses in every corner. Are you in the mood for Peruvian food? Maybe you're in the mood for Chinese, Japanese, or Indian food? San Francisco offers a variety of places to eat, with plenty of these places enriched with cultural dishes, traditions, and art. Enjoy the wonderful atmosphere in this little big city. Enjoy learning about the abundant amount of history behind its breathtaking landmarks like the Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz, lombard street, and much more!
    San Francisco is a beautiful city, full of picturesque views of the bay and the local architecture. Whether you choose to take a stroll through the Presidio, or grab a bite to eat somewhere in Chinatown, you will experience the richness of our city. Although the city itself is small, the traffic can be a headache, so make sure to pack your walking shoes! If you're not a fan of cardiovascular activity, the city enjoys a sprawling metro system that can take you anywhere in a relatively short time. While you're here, enjoy an opera at the breath-taking War Memorial Opera House, or catch some tunes at the Davies Symphony Hall next door!
    I currently live in the Duboce Triangle neighborhood of San Francisco. I would give this location 3 out of 5 stars. Why? Convenience is a 5 -- Bart, Muni Metro, and at least five different muni lines run through this area giving easy accessibility to anywhere in the city. Price is a 2 -- The rental prices per month are ridiculously high. While I understand that location and price go hand in hand, the value per square foot is nowhere close to areas within a few miles outside of the city! So, convenience gets it a 5, but price deducts the 2.
