    Hello Hello! icon_smile.gif

    I am planning on relocating to San Fransisco for work next month, and I'm wondering where the best areas / areas to stay away from are? I've been there a few times for work, and I know Castro is the prominent gay neighborhood, but what other areas are nice?

    Thank you thank you!

    Stay away from the Tenderloin area. Despite its name, it's not a very tender area. icon_confused.gif

    Don't go out to the Sunset or Richmond Districts - they're kinda boring in style, and the weather/fog out toward the ocean is often not as nice as the Mission (sunniest and warmest banana belt area in the City), South of Market, the Western Addition, North Beach, etc. Outer Mission is less fun than the Mission District in closer to downtown. Twin Peaks, Diamond Heights are good for views; Pacific Heights is beautiful but expensive (of course all of SFO is expensive relatively speaking!). Noe Valley is a good neighborhood with pretty good weather too.

    Go visit Golden Gate Park and Haight-Ashbury, but don't live there (again that's getting into the Sunset and Richmond areas).

    Going out of the City takes you out of the point of moving to San Francisco....

    Good luck -- it's still a beautiful city! ( I lived there for about 25 years during my last stretch!)

    Consider doing the AirBnB thing for a month while you pull together your requirements on the "scope" and "cost".

    I live two blocks from the DeYoung Museum (in Inner Richmond) and I love my location. I'm not right in the middle of the madness, yet I'm close enough to get there when I want it.
