We all know how important tech is to the fibre of San Francisco. Heck, where would we be without Silicon Valley, and the likes of Steve Jobs, Mark Zuckerberg, and Larry Page? But, tech central isn’t the best expression of the city, nor does it do the eclectic people and personalities within the city any justice. The best side of the city is shown through the distinct San Francisco neighbourhoods.
As the locals say, “the joy of San Francisco is that you can be whoever the heck you want to be, because it’s San Francisco”. It’s a city for everybody, no matter who you are, or who you want to be. San Francisco a melting pot of cultures, ideals, and lifestyles, which – let’s be honest here – results in some pretty interesting pockets around the city. It’s true that no two neighbourhoods in the Bay Area have the same flavour.
Next time you find yourself bayside, make your way to one (or all) of these vibrant San Francisco neighbourhoods, and familiarise yourself with the real personalities of the city.
