Cow Hollow At A Glance

Situated in the northwest part of the city between the Marina District and Pacific Heights (north to south), and Russian Hill and the Presidio (east to west), lies lovely Cow Hollow. Not as flat as the Marina or as hilly as Pacific Heights, it is comprised of assorted townhomes, apartments and single family homes.  Along the seven-block stretch of bustling Union Street find clusters of old Victorians that have been artfully transformed into shopping compounds, many with alleys leading to flower-filled courtyards and patios.  There is an international array of restaurant options, as well as cafes, wine and sports bars, juice shops, bakeries, pilates studios, cycling shops, chic boutiques, antiques stores, beauty salons and more.  For those looking for a cardio challenge with a stunning view of the bay as a reward, check out the Lyon Street Steps at the edge of the neighborhood where it meets the Presidio.
