Surf's Up

San Francisco's Sunset District stays off most visitors' radar—and the locals like it that way. The low-key neighborhood is as unpretentious (not to mention foggy) as it gets in the city. Flee from the tourist-packed Chinatown, get off the beaten path, and explore the Sunset, where real Chinese cuisine and laid-back surfer culture converge.
