Hayes Valley’s youthful and hip vibe makes it an unbeatable place to be. Park lovers spend their afternoon sitting in Alamo square watching the sunset with a scoop of caramel cupcake ice cream from Salt or Straw, a local favorite. Or, shoppers spend their day in the countless little boutiques and carefully curated retail shops like Marine Layer, before grabbing lunch at one of the many little restaurants that offer fusion cuisines. Make sure to check out Rich Table, one of San Francisco’s top Michelin restaurants! Gym-junkies spend their day at the open-air gym or the vibrant public tennis courts before heading off for a refreshing smoothie or funky cocktail just a stone’s throw away. Wanderers can spend hours taking in the stunning architecture.
