The downtown scene seems pretty unsavoury.
I wouldn't want to be a lady after dark.
I heard a homeless man explaining how at night it's all DRUGS and very hard core.
Still the whole of California seems to have a homeless problem.
So I don't know how it compares to other CA cities?!
Stay out of south east downtown. That is where drug dealers and prostitutes hang out and so do the police. The gangs are decreasing and they stay on the east side.
As long as you keep to the west side of downtown, you'll be allright.
around pacific and mission beach at night there are a lot of bums, don't be afraid, they wont hurt you. Usually they just ask for a few cents, or they try to sell you something. They are completely harmless.
