Now: The Outer Sunset feels like a small, isolated beach town. Cheap motels and surfer apartments are frequent as you reach the end of the line. Apart from having to cross the busy highway to reach the ocean, everything feels lazy and slow. You could probably take a low-key vacation here and forget that you're still in the city.

Then: The Beach Chalet was opened in 1925 and run by the city as part of the array of amenities gracing Ocean Beach during that time. The ground floor contains murals that date back to the 1930s.

How To Get There: This is the final destination of the N-Judah, where it turns around at Ocean Beach and heads back in. It takes a while to get out here on the Muni train, but if you have the time, it's a nice ride. Parking isn't a problem toward the end of Judah.
