About Marina District

San Francisco’s Marina District is one of the city’s most iconic neighborhoods. It is home to the historic Palace of Fine Arts and Fort Mason/Golden Gate Recreation Center. The boutiques, theaters, bars, and restaurants along Chestnut Street are popular among San Franciscans. Though they bring a lot of activity to the southern edge of the neighborhood, the district remains largely quiet in its residential area. With so much public greenspace around it and so many attractions nearby, the Marina District offers some of the best urban living in San Francisco.

Getting Around Marina District

Around Marina District

This small neighborhood has a very similar residential style throughout it's different blocks. Many of the newly built modern apartment buildings are flushed along with a few single-family homes that have managed to stand the test of time. Places near Presidio Park off Baker Street depict a more classic style of San Francisco. The rest of the neighborhood is influenced by its proximity to Downtown, with its apartments buildings spaced out by slews of shops and cafes.

The amount of places to eat on Chestnut Street between Divisadero and Fillmore Streets can be a bit overwhelming. You can have a classic Italian neapolitan pizza that's made in a wood burning oven, freshly made and decently priced sushi, or Spanish tapas with experimental ingredients. Restaurants in this area are diverse in style and price so you can definitely find something that fits your taste buds and budget.

If you're looking for a relaxing neighborhood that's free from the hustle and bustle of big city living, then Marina is perfect for you. Although it's nearby other neighborhoods that experience more noise and traffic, Marina doesn't get any of that overflow. Marina tends to have a very calm and serene environment with residents that are young professionals and fashionistas cruising the streets in new SUVs.

Most of the bars are located off Fillmore Street and are frequently dimly lit and crowded with weekend warriors from the Financial District. Along the edges of Presidio Park there's the Palace of Fine Arts Theater, which is a long standing center for the best plays, musicals, and performing arts of all kinds in the city. If you'd rather see a movie, the Presidio Theater and the Marina Theater are in close proximity on Chestnut Street that show all of the newest movies at some of the lowest prices you'll find.

A sunny Sunday afternoon is a common factor in Marina, which stays at a near perfect temperature pleasant enough to walk down by the water. Shopping is also a favorite pastime for many residents of the Marina. The shops range from chic clothing stores to high tech toy stores selling the latest remote controlled drones. Then there's the Exploratorium near Marina Boulevard. This all-ages science museum is perfect for anyone interested in how the world works. It's a must-see on the weekends and fun events are hosted throughout the year that keep the crowds coming.

Love Living on the Water!

Jennifer P
I love living on the water and having quick access to the bay trail. Even though it can get crazy on a Friday night, I find the neighborhood super peaceful and love that it's my escape from the rest of the city.
