Parking is relatively easy in our area! We are a few blocks outside of the
restricted 2 hour parking (so you can park all day if you need to)
and we are in a residential area.
There is street cleaning one day a week, so you just have to check the signs.
Occasionally, you may need to park a block or two away, but we can provide
a map showing the next easiest places to park if that ever happens.
When we lived there, we had 2 vehicles, and never used our garages
(it's a 1939 building and they are a tight squeeze!). It was never a problem and we could regularly park within a block.
Don't forget to 'curb your wheels' on hills (any slope). There is a law in SF that you need to turn your wheels 'into' the curb (so that if your car came out of park for any reason, it would not go rolling into the next vehicle or down the road).
A leisurely walk to Golden Gate Park (De Young, Cal Academy, Japanese Tea Gardens, Botanical Gardens, Playgrounds, Buffalo, and so much more). Time your visit just right and be walking distance to one of the amazing and sometimes FREE music festivals such as Hardly Strictly Bluegrass.
