Living the San Francisco Dream


Exploring San Francisco - Acme Alley

Exploring San Francisco - Acme Alley

Acme Alley, San Francisco

On a recent afternoon exploration of the Eureka Valley/Eureka Heights area of San Francisco, I spotted the charming Acme Alley, a narrow staircase that doesn't lead to much of anywhere. Located down the hill and across Market Street from Twin Peaks, tiny Acme Alley is a joy to behold, reminiscent of the beauty created in the book by Frances Hodgson Burnett, The Secret Garden.

Take a look at these pictures; perhaps you'll want to explore Acme Alley yourself--and the other nearby delights like Kite Hill and Corbin Street Park.

It looks like a perfectly lovely place to spend an afternoon exploring, and that's one of the many things I love about the San Francisco area.

Hi Norma, there are many delightful, tucked away surprises in San Francisco. Fun, indeed!

Laura, doesn't the Acme Alley staircase remind you of The Secret Garden? It's delightful.

Lou, one never knows what surprise will appear around the corner. San Francisco is a wonderful place in which to walk and explore.

Joe, next time you're in the City ......

I would love to be able to explore San Francisco with my camera in hand.

Thanks for sharing your experience and your photographs.

Roy, you and Dolores should plan a trip. I need to write a post about Strybing Arboretum in Golden Gate Park -- you would have a field day there.
