San Francisco - Nob Hill, Russian (Chapter)
This is the Nob Hill, Russian Hill & Fillmore chapter from Lonely Planet’s San Francisco guidebook.
Hilltop gardens, literary landmarks and divine views await discovery up flower-lined stairway walks. If the climb and the sights don’t leave you completely weak in the knees, try staggering back downhill after a couple of Nob Hill cocktails.
- step off the Powell-Hyde cable car atop twisty Lombard Street and enjoy spectacular hilltop vistas, before descending the hill’s famous switchbacks
- marvel at afternoon fog blowing through the Golden Gate, from atop George Sterling Park – a lovely spot for a picnic
- soak naked in silence in communal Japanese baths at Kabuki Springs & Spa, a cozy hideaway on a cold, foggy day
- restaurants & bars
Coverage includes: Neighborhood Top Five, Local Life, Getting There & Away, Sights, Eating, Drinking & Nightlife, Entertainment, Shopping, Sports & Activities, Nob Hill, Russian Hills, Japantown and Pacific Heights.
