DescriptionSan Francisco is home to one of the largest urban beaches in the country Ocean Beach. The surrounding neighborhoods the Sunset and the Richmond District resemble suburban sprawl more than a city and are comprised mostly of families surfers and those seeking a quieter less urban-intensive lifestyle. The Ocean Beach Bulletin provides hyperlocal coverage for this part of town a section of San Francisco that often falls below the radar of larger city-wide outlets.
