Local campaign signs in the Richmond District are printed in Chinese, Cyrillic and English, reflecting the neighborhood's multicultural heritage. Bordered by the Pacific Ocean, Golden Gate Park and the Presidio, the Richmond 's weather is just as diverse as its population and can range from full sun to dense fog. That doesn't stop the beachcombers (and even a few nude sunbathers) from reveling on the sands of the Outer Richmond, a neighborhood which continues to maintain its relatively quiet residential appeal.

If you're buying a house in the Richmond District, there are Victorians, flats , and cottages built in the early 1900s as well as some newer condos and townhomes on the menu.
