Stunning panoramic views of the Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz and the Marin Headlands are a telltale sign that you have entered Pacific Heights. Victorian mansions line the streets of this historic and affluent neighborhood bordered by Van Ness Ave, Presidio Avenue and Pine and Vallejo streets. Many homes in this residential neighborhood date back to the late 1800s, while more contemporary architecture can be found in luxury condominiums, co-ops and apartments built after the 1906 earthquake.
Pacific Heights offers the quintessential San Francisco experience, with scenic parks steps away from high-end retail shops and bustling restaurants. Lafayette Park and Alta Plaza Park both have tennis courts, playgrounds, and are dog friendly. The challenging climb up Lyon Street steps is bordered by the eucalyptus groves in the Presidio and stately, elegant homes and rewards visitors at the top with a beautiful view of the Palace of Fine Arts and the Bay.
Upper Fillmore Street is home to a wide variety of restaurants with choices from around the world, including Japanese, Mexican, Italian, Vietnamese, Mediterranean and contemporary California menus. Friendly local boutiques selling everything from clothing to furniture to dog accessories mix with upscale global brand stores including Ralph Lauren, Marc Jacobs, Design Within Reach, MAC and Kiehls.
