Places to Chill in Sf if You Are a Tourist but Want to See Locals.

ie places not like Fishermans Warf.
  1. Fillmore Street
    In the center of pacific heights, great food, coffee and shopping.
  2. Union Street
    Enter into Cow Hollow and the marina, more food, shops, bars and restaurants.
  3. Chestnut Street
    You are now in the heart of the marina. The younger version of fillmore st.
  4. Hayes Street
    more hip version of pacific heights and marina crowd but similar vibe.
  5. Polk Street
    The sea breezes of chestnut escape you as you get closer to the tenderloin.
  6. Japan Town
    Lots of great food, kabuki is solid and it's fun wandering into cool little shops you won't find elsewhere.
  7. Clement Street
    Shabu House is my favorite place here although others love Burma Super Star and hit up Genki for some crepes.
