    What's a good neighborhood in San Francisco for three young people.

    I'm moving to San Francisco this August with my boyfriend and a friend. We're just wondering what the best neighborhoods for us would be. I ride my bike everywhere so, I'll need to live somewhere I can just use public transportation/bike. My friend will have a car and my boyfriend will have a motorcycle and a bicycle. Overall, we're looking for a fun/trendy area good for young people with access to public transpo. and downtown SF.

    San Francisco is only 7 miles long by 7 miles wide. You don’t need a car in San Francisco; believe me your better off without one. I live in the sunset district about 2 blocks from Ocean Beach. I love it.

    It’s quiet and I’m only 20 min. from down town by lite rail. I’m 5 min from the Zoo and 10 min from Golden Gate Park.
    Hays Valley is another good area.  About 5 min from downtown, lots of great restaurants, shops and clubs.

    You’re in walking distance from MUNI lite rail, MUNI Buses 5, 21, 47, 49, Bart (Bay Area Rapid Transit).

    SF isn't especially big, but it is expensive. Assuming cost isn't an issue, you'll want to live somewhere in the center or north part of the city. The Marina is the stereotypical post-college place to live, and it's a lot of fun if you want to go out a lot - tons of bars and restaurants. Pacific Heights and Nob Hill are slightly further south and a little quieter, but you've got a lot of bars and restaurants on Polk St. to go to.

    The city isn't that big and public transit is okay and accessible from more or less anywhere in the city limits, so most of the city is open to you. Just be sure to stay away from some of the more dangerous areas - those are the Tenderloin and Western Addition. Beyond that, even if you're living somewhere on the edges of the city like the RIchmond or SOMA, it's just a short Uber ride to wherever you want to be.
