Coordinates: 37.76171°N 122.43512°W
Located in Eureka Valley in San Francisco, the Castro district is famous for being one of the first gay neighborhoods in the United States. The Castro is mainly a business district, but the surrounding residential areas are popular among local gay people. Many gay men settled around the Castro area when the U.S. military discharged thousands of homosexual servicemen from the Pacific front during WWII.
