The Richmond District extends across San Francisco’s northwestern corner of San Francisco. This area is well known for its orderly, residential streets found near Mexican open markets, ethnic restaurants, and Russian cathedrals. However, unlike Inner Richmond, Outer Richmond retains more of a neighborhood feel even along its primary shopping streets.
Outer Richmond is a part of San Francisco that tourists don’t tend to explore, which is a benefit for many residents. Housing options here include low-rise apartment buildings, single-family homes, bungalows, and a few Edwardian and Victorian homes. Since the area isn’t as built up as other parts of the city, housing costs tend to be on the affordable side. Plus, public transit options are available, making it easy to get around the neighborhood and the rest of San Francisco.
