Probably not a major tourist destination although the cable car runs up here. You can see Grace Cathedral, Mark Hopkins and Fairmount hotels (nice to walk around inside) on the way is the Ritz-Carlton. If you want a great, 5-star meal the hotels here all have top quality dining. The Famous "Rice A Roni" commercials with the San Francisco cable cars were filmed on California Street on the way up to Nob Hill from Chinatown.

I just drove thru on California street recently. Best to go by cable car either Powell Street or California Street. Visit Grace Cathedral. Try to hear an Organ recital there, The Organ is one of the best in the world. Go to the Top of the Mark and Visit the Fairmont Hotel. The art decorations on the Masonic Temple are outstanding. A must for any visit to San Francisco.

I'm so glad this part of The City hasn't changed. It can't change because there's no room, thank goodness. I love this spot and I hope no one gets any bright ideas to "improve" anything! This is what The City used to look like and you can still see well dress people strolling up and down the sidewalk. It's classy, clean, beautiful views, and I just love it up on the this hill with the ding ding ding of the Cable Cars. Too San Francisco and I love it!

I wanted to take the other half to see a little bit more than Market. We walked up from the Civic Centre..up Polk,,,and saw some 'real?? SF... we thought we'd conquered most of the hills til we turned right up sacremento...a sense of achievement when you get to the top..great views, walk past the Mark Hopkins IC hotel and the Fairmount. There are cable cars for those who are more sane than me...but a great way to burn off excess cheesecake!
