Lifestyle


​​​​​​​One of the most appealing characteristics of San Francisco is its diversity. District 5, commonly referred to as the Central District, can be the most colorful of neighborhoods in that aspect. Being right in the geographic center of the city, it is in many ways the heart of San Francisco, being home to the famous Haight-Ashbury and the Castro, as well as the quiet popular family neighborhoods like Noe Valley.

Another reason for this district being a popular destination for both tourists and locals is that it is sunnier than other parts of the city, sheltered from the famous San Francisco fog. The oldest public park in the city, Buena Vista Park is located in this district as well as Twin Peaks, Mission Dolores Park, and Mission Dolores itself.

Homes are just as diverse as the residents and neighborhoods in the district, ranging from single-family homes, flats, apartments, and lofts in to condos and the meticulously decorated Victorians in the hillside community of Ashbury Heights, to the wood-shingled homes in nearby Parnassus Heights.

For commuting, Glen Park BART station provides direct access to downtown as well as many Muni lines, tech shuttles, bike lanes, and easy access to Highways 101 and 280.
