  • Treat to this beautiful walk! Many free parking at lands end below the Cliff House are starting point. The way the Bay above the cliffs along the coast. On the road there are many spectacular views of the Bay and the Golden Gate Bridge. Up to the first lookout (mile rock overlook) the path is accessible and well built. If you want to go further then up to the Eagle's Point Lookout, is the way niht more expanded and many stages, which are easily to run in dry weather followed. Can the Eagles point further up to the Golden Gate Bridge walk. But if you want back to the car, the Eagles point is also a good point to return. Time required parking to the Eagles point and back: good 1.5 hours

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.
