Bernal Heights

Located south of the Mission District, Bernal Heights is renowned for having perhaps the best, warmest weather in the city. With a number of surprisingly affordable Victorian Bernal Heights, San Francisco houses, and other smaller San Francisco real estate, the area is a haven for young families and largely residential, although a handful of shops, cafes and restaurants have sprung up along Cortland Street. Bernal Heights Park rises above the properties and provides a welcome open space for hikers and nature enthusiasts. It also serves as a popular destination for dog owners, with its off-leash policy.
