San Francisco is a city with some unique neighborhoods worth exploring on foot. Cow Hollow is one of those. A generally affluent neighborhood located between Russian Hill and The Presidio, and bordering theMarina District on one side and Pacific Heights on the other. The land was used for cow grazing as the name implies and a settlement for fishermen. The main shopping thoroughfare is Union Street, known for its restaurants, boutique shopping, health spas and wellness centers.

The Swensen’s Ice Cream Store opened at the corner of Union & Hyde in San Francisco in 1948. Founder Earle Swensen’s recipes called for using only the finest ingredients and exacting ice cream making techniques. Killer taste!
There are some great little neighborhood eateries – The Tipsy Pig, Patxi’s, and Pizza Orgasmica.
A walk to Fillmore came next. The street is filled with great shops and eateries. Short on time, we cruised through Brooks Brothers’ upscale label Black Fleece store and Jonathan Adler’s home store filled with cool accessories for the classic gentleman!
