Nob Hill

Nob Hill is one of the most exciting parts of San Francisco and attracts tourists and locals for shopping, dining, and entertainment. The area features a number of hotels and famous landmarks and is bordered by Huntington Park. The area is known as being affluent but appeals to a variety of people when it comes to recreation. At the top of the hill is the Fairmont Hotel and the Flood Mansion, but surrounded by bougainvillea and a number of apartment buildings with exteriors compared to wedding cakes. As you move down the hill and away from Huntington Square, you will find Chinatown, Union Square, and a variety of upscale boutiques. The neighborhood is a blend of old fashioned San Francisco and hip new trends. The area is home to cultural landmarks such as the Cable Car Museum, the Grace Cathedral Episcopal Church, and the Lumiere Theatre, showing independent films, documentaries, and foreign release films. A lot of people head to Nob Hill to dine and restaurant selections include Café Bean, Big 4 Restaurant, Fluer de Lys, the Gallery Café, Il Cartoccio, Grubstake, Le Colonial, the Nob Hill Café, and the Polk Street Station Diner. Before or after dinner, take time to browse the shops and stores in the area including Huf sneaker shop, the Argonaut Book Shop, KAYO Books, Lotta Jansdotter, Sugar, the Scottish Tartan Shop, Venus Superstar, and You Say Tomato.
