Saint Patrick's church is a beautiful and historical church surrounded by modern buildings in downtown San Francisco. The church is impressive to look at both from the outside and from the inside. My visit coincided with a service that was just getting started, but it...More

South of Market (SoMa), has an urban and sophisticated vibe, but you're more likely to find big nightclubs and lots of industrial loft residences than you are to find boutique shopping.

Most of its freeway-sized
streets may not capture the same character as other neighbourhoods in the city, but pockets of charm, like South Park, can still be found throughout its side streets.
