Tourists and locals visit the area just to take in the architecture. The neighborhood includes grandiose Victorian, Edwardian, Chateau, and Mission Revival-style homes, and a good number are pre-1906 earthquake. Many of these addresses offe...r sweeping views of the Golden Gate Bridge and the rest of San Francisco Bay, a feature that rarely comes with the quiet of this neighborhood.

Insider Tips: Where to Go



San Francisco is a food town. The tastiest way to abide? Hit Ella's and order the chocolate chip oatmeal pancakes. Laugh off breakfast at George while shopping for luxury cat bowls.



The best way to soak in the daytime view: walk up the Lyon Street Steps, then follow the SF Heritage mansion tour. Bet on which is the senator's and which belonged to Levi Strauss.



Everyone loves a night view of the city. Drive up Fillmore between Green and Broadway and admire the mysterious city below. (Keep your stomach in check on the way down.)
