The Marina: Mediterranean aura along the Bay.
This hip area of the city is a veritable mecca for young professionals enjoying their initial years out of college. Marina real estate enjoys access to excellent shopping and cafes along Chestnut Street, making Marina the ideal place to enjoy a lazy Sunday afternoon. More active residents can head to the Marina Green, a large stretch of grass along the water, popular with runners and latte-sipping dog walkers. The Marina is also home to the popular Palace of Fine Arts, a popular and educational tourist destination.
