MARINA / COW HOLLOW
Tucked between Pacific Heights and the Marina, Cow Hollow boasts the fun and lively character of Union Street, and a few quiet, small residential blocks surrounding the shopping mecca. Recent establishments, like the Instagram-famous Wrecking Ball Coffee and the sleek Umami restaurant mingle with established Union Street icons like Bar None, Perry’s and Rose Cafe. Gorgeous blooms at The Bud Stop Florist, chic spas and funky boutiques add color and whimsy to the neighborhood.
Located on the Bay, between the Presidio and Fisherman’s Wharf, the Marina is known for sidewalk cafes, festive sports bars, and posh eateries along Chestnut Street. Breathtaking views of the Golden Gate and Marin Headlands frame Fort Mason, where seasonal happenings can be found most weekends- including antique fairs, arts & crafts showcases and brew fests. Safeway, Whole Foods and Fort Mason Farmer’s Market makes the Marina a foodie-friendly spot. Brimming with tree-lined streets and excellent schools, the Marina Green and nearby Chrissy Field make it the ideal home for families, dogs and outdoorsy types who enjoy jogs or a pickup game of soccer.
Crosstown Muni and Golden Gate Transit buses make it easy to live car free in Cow Hollow and the Marina, also a popular spot for Marin and Presidio commuters.
