  • You can grab a superb photo for the family album from just standing in the middle of the street. The incline is made easier by ascending the small steps on each pathway.  more »
  • We were visiting the Coit tower and if you go over to the side that faces the piers you can find some stairs that will lead you to the Greenwich steps. It was a super cool walk! Like walking through a...  more »

  • Great time going up or going down. Keep an eye out for the wild parrots. It's the best way to visit Coit Tower.
  • Beautiful, shaded and lush steps with amazing views and crisp air. Definitely a great exercise, so bring water and dress comfortably. Highly recommended.
  • This is a gorgeous path for an urban hike up to Coit Tower. The stairs take you up through the beautiful gardens of the hillside homes around the Tower, but it's not overly strenuous and there are lots of places to stop and take in the stunning views of the Bay and Bridges on a clear day. A great way to explore the city with out-of-town guests without having to slog through the usual tourist traps like Chinatown or Fisherman's Wharf.
  • Awesome! Plenty of flowers lead you to a breathtaking view over the city and the ocean! This is how we start our bike-hike short trip.
  • Best views in the city. Lines move pretty quickly. Staff are very friendly and knowledgeable!

Where to stay in San Francisco

From inexpensive hostels in quiet residential areas to high-end hotels near the city center, San Francisco has accommodations for every budget. Key consideration is what kind of neighborhood you want to stay in. You'll find luxury hotels in Union Square, which has prime shopping, is near theaters, and is on the cable car line. Many hotels are in the northeastern portion of the city, near the tourist-driven neighborhoods of Chinatown and Fisherman's Wharf, both easily explored on foot. To get away from the tourist crowds, consider the smaller inns and family-run bed and breakfasts in some of the city's more charming neighborhoods, such as Noe Valley or Pacific Heights. There are also boutique hotels scattered around town. Avoid staying in the Tenderloin. If you plan to have a car with you, ask about parking availability and fees. Parking is often difficult and expensive.
