Living the San Francisco Dream

Why Living in the San Francisco area is so great - Reason #5

Why Living in the San Francisco area is so great - Reason #5

The lovely walk to my branch library
Golden Gate Valley Branch Library, SFThe small physical size of San Francisco and its many distinct neighborhoods creates an atmosphere conducive to walking. A short walk (7 blocks) from my house takes me to the Golden Gate Valley branch library, housed in a beautifully refurbished building and staffed with friendly, helpful librarians.

Blue Fog coffee and deli, SFDepending on my route, I can choose to take in some steep hills (great cardio workout!) or add a block for a more gentle route.

VictoriansWhichever I choose, I can enjoy the lovely Victorian houses along the way, stop in for a coffee at one or more coffee houses, enjoy a leafy green neighborhood park, or continue the walk to the shops on nearby Union Street or run errands on Polk Street, close to home.

City living, at its best!

Lottie, your area has so much appeal!  I can almost imagine heading out for the library and seeing all these wonderful sights along the way.  Thanks for sharing your neighborhood.

Hi Nancy, there's something fun and surprising on almost any walk -- a new store, people, a beautiful old Victorian house, a view, the smell of fresh-brewed coffee. And it's great to take them in on foot.

Jim, come on down for a visit--you live close enough to enjoy San Francisco often.

Hi Lottie... and the Blue Fog makes terrific sandwiches at lunch time for my crew when we're working in the area!!

I stopped in the Blue Fog on my way home from the library last week--their roasted vegetable panini sounded so great--but they were out! I'll have to try them next time.

Lottie -  I have been to San Francisco the last three weekends in a row.   I have been going over the hill so much lately that I bought a fastrack for my car so I can zip across the bridge.

San Francisco is really a great place to raise a family and have a more leisurely pace, but with a touch of sophistication.  I miss living there!  Weather is great too!

Jim, I think you're just about ready for a pied-a-terre here in SF! Fastrak is great, but having your spot here would be even better!

Jennifer, you live in an exciting place yourself. Do you get back here often to visit?
