Safe and Dangerous Places in San Francisco by K. Chang, an AOL Travel ContributorPosted Aug 16th 2010 01:04 PM Alamy San Francisco is an odd city. Here are the five safest and the five most dangerous areas in San Francisco, from a local resident to help you get the best out of your time in the "City by the Bay." Safest areas Union Square is center of the "downtown" area, surrounded by shops, restaurants, and hotels catering to tourists. Another touristy-spot of San Francisco Fisherman's Wharf is crowded enough well into dusk to be safe enough to walk about, and there are plenty of public transit and shops and whatnot to keep you busy. Chinatown / North Beach / Nob Hill / Financial District: These areas are all so close together that I count them together. The Richmond neighborhood (Geary and Clement streets), basically anything north of Golden Gate Park, is mostly residential, but some streets are known for commercial stuff as well. Areas to avoid Golden Gate Park is very dark at night, and visitors are NOT welcome.

Los Angeles: What Neighborhood to Stay in The first question to ask – what do you want to see or do while in Los Angeles? Will you be traveling with children? Do you like great restaurants? Are you a clubber? Most important: will you have a car while in L.A and what is your nightly budget for a hotel? A key to getting better hotels when on a budget, is to use (the ‘Name Your Own Price” feature) or and request a 3- or 4-star hotel in either Beverly Hills, Hollywood, West Hollywood or Santa Monica. Here is a list of popular neighborhoods in which to stay listed from east to west in the metro area. DOWNTOWN LOS ANGELES (DTLA) tends to be the most reasonably priced area, but it's not a typical "downtown", meaning, it's not the city center. HOLLYWOOD is a good base for those who want to be near the Walk of Fame and Universal Studios – it’s also convenient for those who don’t want to rent a car and are relying on public transportation, especially since it has subway stops in it.
