Offering a spot of sunshine even while the rest of the city is rolling in fog, Noe Valley has become an oasis for the middle and upper class seeking a reprieve from the city life. Offering a farmer’s and flea market, it incorporates down-to-earth elements while still meeting the needs and expectations of its residents. During the day, it is filled with dogs being walked and strollers being pushed, and many cups of coffee are poured in its cafes. At night, there are a few options to enjoy, though the neighborhood is quieter than most. For a residential feel in the middle of San Francisco, you cannot beat Noe Valley.
