Outer Richmond Neighborhood Vibe
Tucked away from the hectic pace of the east side of the City, the Outer Richmond is quieter, calmer, and cooler (the fog makes sure of that). More residential, less commercial, but still close to plenty of outdoor activities and an easy commute north.
Popular Outer Richmond Home Styles
Housing in the Outer Richmond tends to be larger single-family homes on standard San Francisco (25′ wide) lots, most of which are attached or semi-attached to their neighbors. Condos and tenancies-in-common can also be found throughout the Outer Richmond.
Getting Around in the Outer Richmond
The 38-Geary and the 1-California buses are the main east-west transportation lines through the Outer Richmond. Commuters to the North Bay have easy access to the Golden Gate Bridge from this neighborhood.
Bounded by the Pacific Ocean and Great Highway to the west, Clement Street and Lands End to the north, 32nd Avenue to the east, and Fulton to the south, the Outer Richmond appeals to those looking for a quieter corner of the city to call home. Proximity to Ocean Beach and Lands End, as well as the Presidio, provides a plethora of opportunities for outdoor activities. There are plenty of neighborhood cafes and restaurants where everyone will know your name after you become a regular. There’s no light rail service in this neck of the woods, so taking public transit to downtown means the 38-Geary or the 1-California bus.
