Around Presidio

The architectural style of the luxury homes in Presidio Heights are generally Beaux Arts, Tudor Revival, Edwardian, and Mission Revival. It is a quiet residential area with older homes built in the 1900s to the 1930s and consists mainly of large single-family homes. However, there are condominiums and more modest single-family homes on Arguello Boulevard, Clay, or Sacramento Streets. There are some additional residential buildings (previously military housing) in neighborhoods surrounding the park, such as Baker Beach. The park isn't particularly pet friendly, so plan to keep them indoors or leashed at all times.

Locals in the Presidio neighborhood enjoy some of the best fine dining in the city, with top-notch restaurants such as Sociale, Garibaldi's, and Spruce within walking distance.
