    The Castro
    A flourishing commercial area that acts as San
    Francisco's LGBT community center and cultural heart,
    the Castro is a neighbourhood welcome to everyone. As
    one of the first predominantly LGBT neighbourhoods in
    the United States and currently its largest, it
    remains one of the epicenters of activism in the
    nation. Grand theatres and glitzy shops now compete
    with bars and fashionable eateries for attention,

    We had a car and were able to park it a block away. You have to be aware of street cleaning days and read signs to be sure what side of street to park on.
