Getting Around Golden Gate Heights

Around Golden Gate Heights

Living in Golden Gate Heights is perfect for couples and families with children because of its serene and reclusive setting. Many residences in this area also enjoy immaculate views of the neighborhood from any angle. Other gorgeous locations within the city often draw a crowd, but not in Golden Gate Heights. Any area in this neighborhood is great for living in private properties that enjoy peace and quiet.

Golden Gate Heights consists of residential homes and park spaces and lacks a culinary scene. Residents of this family-oriented neighborhood typically explore other areas nearby for some dining optins. The culinary scene requires you to go to the Inner Sunset neighborhood nearby that has a variety of restaurants and cuisines. From sushi and Italian to authentic Indian cuisines, those are just some of the options you'll find outside of Golden Gate Heights.

Expect to see a lot of nature, parks, and open green spaces in Golden Gate Heights. Grand View Park and Golden Gate Heights Park are pristine locations for hiking, biking, and sitting while enjoying the views and people passing by. It's also the perfect spot for getting away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Expect to see steep staircases leading higher up into the neighborhood like at 14th Avenue and Moraga, which are covered in beautiful street art. This area is a family neighborhood and it is common to see mothers with children in the playground. You'll also see students who attend the school nearby looking for quiet areas to study.

You should spend a Friday night watching the sun set over the city up at the peak of Grand View Park. Any other fun ideas would have to be taken outside of Golden Gate Heights because it doesn't have a nightlife scene. Try some high-end italian restaurant on 9th Avenue in a nearby neighborhood, or grab some Asian fusion cuisine with outside heated seating on Lincoln Way, which is just a few blocks away from Golden Gate Heights.

A perfect Sunday is all about family picnicking in open green spaces, and unlike other parks in the city, this neighborhood won't feel crowded or attract loud tourists on warm days. For outdoor lovers, running up the stairs at Moraga Street is worth the task because once you reach the top you will enjoy breathtaking views of the city.
