Why locals love it

Located between Leavenworth Street and Taylor Street on Russian Hill, Macondray Lane is one of San Francisco's most iconic laneways. This delightful escape is only accessible by foot and can be reached by climbing a series of wooden steps.

Why you should visit it

You’ll feel a world away walking down this peaceful and lush cobblestone lane. It’s a true haven in the heart of the city, with flower gardens and fruit trees, a little zen fountain and lazy cats resting in the sun. It will give you a real insight into the souls of San Franciscans.

Special tip

Fans of Maupin's "Tales of the City" will especially want to visit this spot, which featured as the fictitious Barbary Lane in the TV series.
