San Francisco, CA
SoMa is one of San Francisco's youngest and edgiest areas, now filled with nightlife, artist lofts, and frayed-around-the edges urban chic shopping. Historically an industrial part of town, over the past decades SoMa (South of Market) has adapted to San Francisco's changing demographics. The economic boom changed the eastern side to an extension of the financial district, while the non-residential area is perfect for nightlife and the conversion of old factories into artists' lofts. Now dotted with museums, independent bookstores, and hip clubs, SoMa is the funky urban alternative to San Francisco's more commonly tourist-ridden spots.
