  • Pacific Heights is one of the most beautiful areas of the city. The villas are beautifully decked out and it has a great view of the golden gate bridge.

  • This is where old rich people live and the stores and restaurants reflect that. Not very hip and from the past.  more »
  • In the area of Pacific Heights we have walked along the quiet beautiful neighborhoods with Victorian mansions. From here you can admire a view of the Bay, the Golden Gate Bridge and Alcatraz Island. We have done a lot of great photos.
