Consisting of five residential areas, expansive public parks, and diverse cultural influences, the Richmond District remains a significant part of San Francisco's colorful and revered communities.

Around Richmond District

Richmond, composed of five major areas, is in a constant state of reinvention. One is constantly greeted with renovated houses, streets, and businesses. Period homes emerge refurbished; bringing interest from middle-class professionals and young families. The streets are flanked with Edwardian cottages and typical facades of a previous time, making each house distinct from the next. Housing costs reflect the neighborhood's restoration though some can still find bargains relative to the rest of the city.

This is where to come for all flavors Asian. With higher-rated restaurants than those in the city's famous Chinatown, locals have given this neighborhood the reputation of being one of the best for dining. Don't expect fancy service and decor in these parts of the woods. Here it's all about great prices, remarkable food, and unique fare. There are quiet spots to feast on Thai food after braving the crowded shops. Other options include French, Indian, and Slavic, like Cinderella Bakery on Balboa Street for meat and pierogies.

Richmond is known as the "second Chinatown," so expect to see plenty of shops and restaurants selling Chinese food and goods. Tourism is still a major feature of the neighborhood, though not as prevalent as other areas. Still, shops along Clement Street cater to those crowds with less expensive mementos. Other shops for home goods, galleries, collectibles, and book stores can be found along Clement between 4th and 9th streets.

Locals enjoy the atmosphere in this neighborhood for being unpretentious and hosting just a "regular crowd." Expect the nightlife to be the same. Bars are inviting, socializing is informal, and usually lively entertainment consists of a pool game at one of the pubs or patrons yelling at TVs during soccer matches. Try decades old The Plough & the Stars on Clement Street for live Irish music, a mixed crowd, pool and darts: can't go wrong unwinding in a place like that.

Grab carry-out and head to Golden-Gate Park for a memorable picnic, visit to the Rose and Japanese Tea Gardens, and the waterfalls at Stow Lake. Head to The Presidio, an old military post turned national park, and view architecturally vibrant military buildings. Plan on having dinner at Sutros's Cliff House. Perched on the cliffs off Lincoln Park, this restaurant has become a tourist favorite for breathtaking views and appetizing seafood.
