Maybe this is too far away from the wharf for your typical tourist, but these fun, arty steps open up to one of the best views in SF. The best part, is that you won’t be sharing the view with a million of your Lombard...More

The steps and unique, colorful and fun for pictures. However, the view if you go to the park on the top is the real attraction. One a clear day, the sights are amazing! I’d highly recommend.

The tile work on the steps is so intricate and beautiful. We studied them going down and stopping at each landing and again going up the 183 steps. This is not a steep climb but more a gradual progression. We also went to Grandview Park...More

Get a clipper card and take the tram over to this site. It's cool to walk up these steps and continue onto the Moraga steps. When you're done, you can go back down and hop the tram instead of having to call an uber. Overall,...More

This is a place you’ll love to visit. The steps are gorgeous, so much work has gone into this art project. A beautiful place to hike, walk and just enjoy the beauty of San Francisco. One of my favorite cities in the world!

This is strictly a residential neighborhood. The nearest restaurant is 3 blocks down the hill to the left. You can enjoy the plants while the kids play and keep an eye on your vehicle.
