Cool neighborhood to shop hip stores and have lunch at one of the trendy restaurants. It is only a few blocks long but definitely worth going.

Behind the Opera House and the symphony hall you will find this cool neighborhood of fancy restaurants and expensive shops. There is a good park where there used to be a freeway. Lots of old Victorians.

We went to Hayes Valley which is a fun upscale neighborhood to go to with boutique shops, cafes, and restaurants. There is also a nice park area.

What a cool neighborhood. After dining at Petit Crenn, my friend and I decided to walk around and so enjoyed this area. It is very clean (unlike some other areas in the city). There are many great food options, from restaurants to food trucks all in one central area. We saw a lot of unique clothing stores and boutiques too. The weather was perfect so lots of folks were walking around or sitting on the benches eating their food truck food and enjoying the night. We wondered through a store that sells specialty grocery and food gifts and wine. You might find flavored honey, unique salad dressings, gift items and a large wine selection. This neighborhood is worth spending some time in.

We sat in Patricia’s Green in Hayes Valley.the park was very busy with children, families, dogs, etc. There was plenty of seating available and we had a pleasant time. My granddaughter loved the play structure too.

It's hard to believe how much this neighborhood has soared in 40 years, from a dark area under the old freeway full of ladies of the night to boutique central where you can't buy anything for less than $100. And lots of chic restaurants. Fun to explore.

This was our favorite area of San Francisco. No commercialized shops, or Restaurants. But instead offering exactly what we were looking for with cute little boutique style shopping and yummy cafes, Bakery, and authentic dining experiences to choose from.
