The first stop after the Golden Gate Bridge, the Marina is prime territory to soak in the sunlight and enjoy the unique fusion between bay and buildings that comprises quintessential SF. The row of harbor-adjacent estates delivers a beautiful representation of the city’s diverse color palette and architecture styling, with designs ranging from pastel to vibrant and antique to modern. Residents relish views of the water from walks along the parallel path, picnics on the grass and beach at Crissy Field, and the athletic offerings of Marina Green and its outdoor gym setup.
Chic shops, restaurants, and bars bloom along the vibrant Chestnut Street. The Palace of Fine Arts and Fort Mason are San Francisco landmarks with weekly farmers’ markets and frequent art showcases that imbue this hip locale with classic charm. With grocery stores and Muni stations dispersed throughout, convenience complements bountiful activity in this residential haven.
