The LGBT community’s most famous and iconic rainbow flag symbol was born in The Castro. Flags line the streets of this vibrant and historically revolutionary community which has also become a haven for tech professionals, thanks to its central location, easy access to lots of public transit and sunny weather. Home styles here range from refurbished Victorians and Edwardians, to modernist and contemporary. As one moves outward from the bustle of the Castro and Market Street intersection, the neighborhood gets quieter, which is ideal for those looking for the best of both city and suburban life. 


Easy walkability for residents and close access to public transit.
