San Francisco`s Top Neighborhoods

With more than 100 distinct neighborhoods and major suburbs surrounding the Bay Area, San Francisco has a long list of places for groups to explore. Whether you’re traveling around the city proper, need to charter a bus to Oakland, or need a charter bus rental to San Jose, you’ll find the best transportation with San Francisco Charter Bus Company. Here are just a few of San Francisco’s top neighborhoods that you can explore in a private charter bus rental:

South Market (SoMa)

South of Market is a large neighborhood that is south of Market Street on the eastern side of the San Francisco Peninsula. This area also includes the bustling Mission neighborhood and South Beach. Grab tickets to a Giants game at Oracle Park, visit the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, plan a craft brewery tour around local SoMA spots, or attend a big event at the Moscone Center.

North Beach

North Beach has historically been an enclave for San Francisco’s Italian American community. This neighborhood was also an important location for authors of the Beat Generation, inspiring Allen Ginsberg, Jack Kerouac, and Lawrence Ferlinghetti. Today, you'll still find heavy influences of Italian culture and the beatnik subculture sprinkled throughout North Beach. Plan a group trip to North Beach and organize stops at the City Lights Bookstore and Beat Museum before grabbing a bite and spots like Tony's Pizza Napoletana or Original Joe’s.


Haight-Ashbury was the heart of the 1960s hippie counterculture movement in San Francisco, once being the home of Jimi Hendrix, Jefferson Airplane, and the Grateful Dead during the Summer of Love. This lively neighborhood is the home of “flower power” and those remnants can still be felt today in colorful Victorian homes, vintage clothing stores, local bookstores, record shops, dive bars, and eclectic restaurants.

Financial District

San Francisco's Financial District is the city’s main business hub, boasting towering skyscrapers, upscale hotels, and fine dining experiences. Plan a corporate event in San Francisco, then make an executive dinner reservation at Tadich Grill, the state’s oldest restaurant, and enjoy swanky cocktails at a rooftop bar like Shelby's Rooftop.

The Castro

The Castro is one of the country’s oldest gay neighborhoods and is one of the best places to be during San Francisco Pride! This historic neighborhood stands as a symbol of LGBTQ+ activism and was an important landmark area during the 1960s Summer of Love. Stop at the Human Rights Campaign Action Center, the former home of activist and politician Harvey Milk, to learn about LGBTQ+ history, stop by landmarks like the soon-to-be reopened Castro Theatre, and enjoy community events out in the sunshine at Dolores Park.
