    Tourists don't usually see the charming and diverse neighborhoods of San Francisco. You'll rarely see a local hanging out at the wharf on a Saturday night! Instead of being shuffled around the tourist traps in Union Square and Fisherman's Wharf, head to the Mission or SOMA neighborhoods for some nightlife. Spend a Sunday afternoon cruising the shops in Noe Valley or on Chestnut Street. Or how about stopping by 9th and Irving for a coffee after a walk in Golden Gate park. Try 'Park Chow' or 'Avenue 9', both on 9th Avenue.

    WEST PORTAL - This quiet neighborhood is located on the far side of the Twin Peaks hills. So far, it's been relatively untouched by the mass gentrification of a lot of the city. The retail strip is about four or five blocks long, with a few nice restaurants, coffee shops, and other assorted stores. The neighborhood was built in tandem with the streetcar tunnel through the hills, early in the century. Today, you can take a K, L or M METRO train from Market Street to the West Portal station.
