Welcome to Potrero Hill
The Potrero Hill Neighborhood, San Francisco.
Name a place in San Francisco where you can find the best city views, the best skyline, and the most hills in one area? Welcome to Potrero Hill! Potrero Hill is a very laid-back neighborhood in San Francisco. There are no clubs here- only family-friendly fun- and the residents prefer it this way: quiet, community-minded, relaxed, kid-friendly, and casual.
Potrero Hill has gained fame from its beautiful placement against the eastern hills of San Fran. The spectacular views you can find here are postcard-worthy, lit up by endless sun rays and (sometimes) speckled with hazy clouds.
While this district is dominantly residential, it is an up-and-coming neighborhood in Eastern San Fran-along with its neighbor, Dogpatch. Relaxed music venues and diners are popping up, offering locals a space to enjoy great food while gazing at those sweeping eastern hills.
