Okay...so I've heard about The Castro District all my life and with all the times I've visited San Francisco, I never seemed to get to this neighborhood. It was a real treat to be among the residents and visitors and simple enjoy the vibe of...More
A friend of ours and her partner are getting married in Castro in the near future and as we were in the city we thought we would go and visit the area . We travelled there on one of the f line street cars and...More
I've visited gay village in different places and I am quite disappointed with the Gay village in Castro. seems to just become so blah. in other places, you know you are in the gay village because they are decorated differently to just accentuate the diversity....More
The Castro District is a fantastic blend of colour and culture ! There are so many nationalities/ethnic/minor groups living and mixing in harmony ! Art, dance, food, shopping, entertainment, friendliness and plenty more are here in abundance. Some research before you travel will certainly enhance...More
It was wonderful to stroll around the neighbourhood with its many symbols of diversity and acceptance.
Seeing the Twin Peaks Tavern it was easy to understand why it was such a herald of gay equality in the early 1970s, with its large un-curtained windows allowing...More
Small main area along Castro with nice small shops, quick eateries and sit down restaurants, Castro theater, and a lot of history! Long ride on the F bus from downtown, but worth it for the $2.75 fare.
Spent the afternoon in the Castro area. Went to visit the Human Rights shop along the main road. Very well kept area. Loved the friendly community feel of the place. Streets full of young people. Wish more places could be as tolerant as this place....More
The Castro holds the distinction of being one of the first openly gay neighborhoods of the US. The district has points of interest like the Harvey Milk Plaza, the Castro theatre and the first hospice in the country to take care of gay patients suffering...More
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,
drawing visitors from around the world to the bright rainbow flag acting as its beacon.

We ate at this italian place located on the second floor....for the life of me i can't remember the name. I orderedthe pasta with squid ink. If you like spicy things this will be perfect for you. If you can't get a table since they are popular, sit in the bar. You get entertained by the barkeep with his stories about san fran. Hope that helps.
