Laurel Heights is a quiet, refined neighborhood nestled at the foot of the Presidio. Reminiscent of elegant neighbor Pacific Heights, it boasts an abundance of Victorian homes and a family-oriented, suburban feel in the middle of San Francisco.
This pocket neighborhood has an outsized healthcare and education presence – both the UCSF Laurel Heights Campus and California Pacific Medical Center call Laurel Heights home, and the University of San Francisco is blocks away. Health benefits extend to the Presidio’s plentiful green space, well-maintained Laurel Hill Playground and Tennis Court, and the JCCSF pool.
Stores, restaurants, and shopping are found on bustling Geary Boulevard, boutique- and café-lined Sacramento Street, and California Street’s Laurel Village Shopping Center (home to Cal-Mart, an Ace Hardware, and plenty of restaurants). Nightlife enthusiasts can get their fix at nearby Clement Street, which begins on the border of Laurel Heights and the Inner Richmond.
