"Pretty much a total drag."
I have a small soft spot for the Outer Sunset. It's quiet, at night you can hear the ocean, and it's cheaper than other areas of San Francisco. But other than that, things get pretty drab. In the Sunset, 30th Ave. is bounded by parks on the north and south. There's an L Taraval streetcar stop at the corner of 30th and Taraval, but it's far enough from the start of the line that in the morning trains are often already full by the time they get there. The best thing is the 66 Quintara, which runs up 30th from Vicente to Quintara. It offers a great and really quick shortcut out of the neighborhood to the shopping and dining area around 9th and Judah. On the other side of Golden Gate Park, 30th remains residential.
