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.
