Richmond District Overview

Like the Sunset Neighborhood, the Richmond is also known as the "Inner Richmond" or the "Outer Richmond," with the division generally agreed to be at Park Presidio Boulvard (which becomes 19th as it crosses Golden Gate Park into the Sunset).

The Outer Richmond has a laid back, beach-town quality you'll appreciate after fighting for parking spots elsewhere in the city. Natural treasures and outdoor opportunities abound in the Outer Richmond. The Lands End Trail affords hikers on one of the most gorgeous views to the Marin Headlands and Golden Gate Bridge; the beaches (China Beach, Baker Beach...) can be blustery but scenic; both Ocean Beach and Golden Gate Park are within easy reach, and a good portion of the area has wide boulevards and relatively flat terrain for biking and walking.

The Outer Richmond is also home to history, in the form of the Legion of Honor, the Cliffhouse and the Sutro Baths.
