Now: Frequently fog-bound, the Inner Sunset's epicenter of Irving Street and 9th Avenue is densely packed with diverse eateries including the beloved Arizmendi Bakery. The genuine neighborhood feel and proximity to Golden Gate Park via 9th Avenue make this one of the sweetest spots in the city.

Then: This area is roughly where the first "Sunset District" homes were built on the sand dunes in 1887.

How To Get There: The N-Judah Muni line travels directly through Irving Street, turning up to Judah at 9th Avenue. The 6-Parnassus bus line turns off of Haight Street at Masonic Avenue, if you want a shortcut from the Upper Haight. Parking can be difficult, and you may need to drive a couple of blocks up into the Avenues to find a space.
