Up north near Sloat Boulevard you'll find mostly one-story single-family homes and a few apartment buildings in between. While the southern half of the neighborhood is between the San Francisco State University and golf courses, you'll see mostly college students and young professionals living in this area in either student housing or converted apartments.

Where to Eat

As far as a culinary scene, there aren't many places to find a meal in the immediate proximity. However, there are a few good cafes, fast food chains, and lunch spots located around San Francisco State University. You can also find a few pop up snack shacks and food trucks that occasionally roll through Lake Merced Park on sunny days for a grab-and-go bite.

What You'll See

You'll see large crowds of tourists and bar patrons in this neighborhood on certain days. Big street festivals occasionally happen in this area as well.

Friday Night Fun

Lakeshore isn't known to have a vibrant nightlife. But you can find some form of entertainment on the outskirts of the neighborhood around Junipero Serra Boulevard.
