Nob Hill, San Francisco
Categories: Neighborhoods, Landmarks, Tourist Spots
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.

This is a very steep hill in downtown San Francisco. It's iconic and the views from the top are beautiful--worth the hike at least once.
Fantastic architecture and historic buildings and hotels here. It was quite a hike up from China town but we were anxious to see it and made the walk.
