Learn About This Location
If California is one grand, long arm lining the Pacific, then San Francisco is like a finger pointing up. It's like it's giving a hint to look up: you'll notice the city's crooked Victorian rooflines, wind-blown treetops and fog tumbling over the bridge.
Heads are kept in the clouds on San Francisco's 43 hills. Cable cars give easy access to Russian and Nob Hills, and splendid panoramas reward venturers who climb to Coit Tower – but the best views are from Telegraph Hill's garden-lined walks and hikes around Land's End.
