Best streets for a new comer wanting to be submersed in the SF cultureThe opinions expressed here are those of the individual and not those of StreetAdvisor. Report
Clement Street in the Richmond DIstrict (fantastic mix of Asian restaurants/culture, and great bookstores - Green Apple is one of the best i the city). Also Valencia Street if you want to see what's happening with the young/hipster/tech scene in SF.
What about bringing a young family along? Best street be Jefferson St (up in Fisherman's Warf)?

Well it's going to depend on your length of stay here in San Francisco. I would say if I had one day to visit the city I would walk down Columbus from the pyramid down to Fisherman's Wharf area for a great one-day SF experience! With more time Clement, Union, Polk, and Valencia are all must-visit streets for a variety of reasons.

Folsom St in the Mission. You are walkable to tons of great food, easy transit. It is quiet but still in the center of the city. Lots of great diversity of culture and good night life.
Definately the Tenderloin. North Beach still seems kind of like San Francisco too.
I agree with Mike. I immediately thought Valencia Street, and they call Clement Street the "real" Chinatown. You might also want to check out Columbus Avenue which borders North Beach and Chinatown.
