Glimpse the old-world glamor of early San Francisco in this Gold Rush-era installment of the city. While world-famous attractions such as Lombard Street and the San Francisco Art Institute draw attention to the neighborhood, the timeless allure of elegant, tight-knit architecture and a park-infused landscape creates a cozy atmosphere where all residents feel at home.
Russian Hill Park offers one of the best views of the city and Bay Area beyond, with the Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz, and the polychrome dappling of Sausalito houses all in sight from the top. Playgrounds and basketball and tennis courts proliferate within the other neighborhood expanses. To the west, Polk and Hyde Streets offer extensive dining and entertainment opportunities that fluidly mingle classic tastes and modern flair. A plethora of boutiques thrive alongside cafes, bars, and restaurants such as Saint Frank Coffee, Macondray, and Seven Hills.
While a residential oasis itself, Russian Hill stands central to the iconic dynamism of SF. Vibrant neighborhoods North Beach, Chinatown, and Nob Hill encircle it, and Downtown dazzles just a Cable Car ride away.
