The Sunset District Neighborhood Guide

San Francisco's massive Sunset District is comprised of two smaller neighborhoods: Inner Sunset and Outer Sunset.

Inner Sunset is the smaller of the two communities. It is home to the UCSF campus and medical center, restaurants and businesses along Irving Street, and several parks (including Grandview Park with its iconic San Francisco views).

Outer Sunset is roughly bounded by Golden Gate Park to the north, 19th Avenue to the east, Sloat Boulevard to the south, and Ocean Beach to the west. Not only does it offer a long strip of beach free from high-rise developments, Outer Sunset features several parks, commercial areas, and a plethora of homes. Outer Sunset is also home to the annual Stern Grove Festival at a local park.
