Nob Hill, San Francisco

(160+ reviews on the web)
Neighborhood Landmark
Explore the elegant neighborhood of Nob Hill, boasting superb views and a location conveniently close to downtown San Francisco. A few charred stone walls around the area serve as a testament to its destruction during an earthquake and fires in 1906. Historically an upper-class quarter, it remains so today, boasting a striking cathedral and hotel rebuilt after the earthquake--plus one dizzyingly steep street. The sharp inclines throughout the neighborhood can be a challenge, but cable cars will help you along the way. After sightseeing, explore the many popular restaurants, clubs, and bars, or relax outside in the city parks. Use our San Francisco travel itinerary maker to add Nob Hill and other attractions to your San Francisco vacation plans.
