So much to see in this part of town...several museums, the big convention center, and now the financial district is shifting here. Plus the baseball field, lots of cool restaurants and bars and lots of new residents. Very dynamic district.

This used to be one of the worst neighborhoods, but now it is full of bars and bistros and even the Giants.

This part of San Francisco is loaded with things to see. Several major museums, a new financial district, walks along the Bay, lots of fancy restaurants and hip clubs, brand new residential neighborhoods. This used to be an edgy area, but now is the center...More

Filled with restaurants, food trucks, cafes, bars, businesses/companies, this area is interesting and near enough to city center, that it's an easy diversion.

I tried to understand why this are is even on the "to visit" map. It is just a neighbourhood which had it's epic when nerdies were working there but now it has nothing special to offer other than a quiet area for locals

South of Market is a place to go when you want to sample cuisine from around the world and all in trucks! Not the fanciest dining but it is hearty and delicious and more reasonably priced than a sidewalk café. The area does have some...More

South of Market (SoMa), has an urban and sophisticated
vibe, but you're more likely to find big nightclubs
and lots of industrial loft residences than you are to
find boutique shopping. Although it’s the epicenter
for tech startups in the city, visitors will be able
to do more than just business - museums, top quality
restaurants, and the San Francisco Giants now call
this neighbourhood home. Most of its freeway-sized
