3 hottest neighborhoods in San Francisco

Last Updated on

San Francisco is currently one of the hottest cities to live in. Housing multiple tech companies and being a principal banking and financial center of the west coast, the Bay Area attracts all kinds of people to its various districts. Here are the three hottest neighborhoods you should be looking at if you’re moving there.

Oakland

Get the best of both worlds in Oakland. Not only do you have easy access to San Francisco via the Bay Bridge, but you can also find your own little quiet heaven away from the main city. Spend your days at community parks — DeFremery Park, Lowell Park, Lindon Park — or the beautiful Lake Merritt (you can even ride a gondola). If you’re more of a history buff, then visit architectural masterpieces such as the Fox Theatre or grab a drink at the historic Heinold’s First and Last Chance Saloon. You’ll find something new to love about Oakland every day.

Hayes Valley

Hayes Valley is the chic and trendy neighbor of SoMa. Its main commercial street, Hayes Street, features several home goods boutiques, dessert shops, and hip, new restaurants. But that’s not the only great part of the neighborhood. The close-knit community collaborates in a community garden and share access to music and theater near the Civic Center. Not to mention, there’s tons of good food and drinks there, including Barcino for tapas, Absinthe for cocktails, and Suppenkuche for German fare and boots of beer.

SoMa

What once was a warehouse district is now one of the most dynamic and hottest neighborhoods in the Bay Area. South of Market, spanning from Market Street south to Townsend Street and west of Embarcadero to Eleventh Street, comes packed with all kinds of attractions. Not only are you surrounded by parks like the Yerba Buena Gardens, but you can also admire art the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art and catch a Giants’ game at the AT&T Park. It doesn’t stop there. End the day or celebrate an occasion at happening bars such as the 21st Amendment Brewery and Thirsty Bear, all walking distance from your lodging.
