Eureka Valley

Eureka Valley, also known as “The Castro” is the home of many Gay and Lesbians as well as a growing diverse population that enjoys the sunny weather and freedom of expression that The Castro represents. The neighborhood is very central and has excellent public transportation with the MUNI Metro and several bus lines that will get you anywhere you want to go in the city. The famous Castro Theater has film festivals, public sing a longs to Sound of Music and other special events. It’s historical façade is an icon in San Francisco. There are rainbow flags everywhere, many gay bars and lots of great restaurants. My partner and I enjoy The Midnight Sun for it’s great cocktails and outdoor seating as well as Anchor Oyster Bar (our favorite seafood in the city). The streets are bustling with energy and excitement, especially annually during Gay Pride which is in June every year. People come to San Francisco’s Castro from all over the world to marvel at the open/expressive freedom and joy that the neighbood represents. There are many Victorians and Edwardians in the Castro and a mix of single family homes and condos that are mostly the flat style in 2-4 unit buildings. There are also dog parks, tennis courts and so much more. This neighborhood is truly the heart of San Francisco which many call the most “European” city in the United States.
