South City offers a suburban lifestyle within reach of the Bay Area.
Folks in South San Francisco have easy access to The City via I-280, the 101, or BART rail service. This fact, coupled with the much lower crime rate and the area’s many excellent schools, makes South San Francisco apartments an appealing option for commuters, particularly those raising families.
Although primarily a residential community, South San Francisco does have a fairly active downtown scene, with much of the dining and entertainment centered around the intersection of Grande Avenue and Linden Avenue and shopping centers on the south side of town.
Many parks and nature preserves are scattered around the area, including the huge Sweeney Ridge and Fairway Park just to the west of the city limits. San Francisco International Airport sits directly south of town, making it highly convenient to travel anywhere.
