The beauty of San Francisco - A Thursday Thirteen

Where I find beauty in San Francisco...leave yours in the comments section.

  1. Riding the cable car from Powell Street through Union Square up to Nob Hill and beyond, dropping off locals along the way
  2. Walking through Chinatown and stopping to buy steamed buns in a tiny shop on Jackson Street
  3. Sitting at a window in Cafe Greco on Columbus Street sipping a cappuccino
  4. Sharing a Molinari Deli sandwich - with everything on it - on a big blanket in Washington Square Park then sipping a cappuccino at Mario's
  5. Staring at the view of the Hyde Street Pier from the end of Larkin Street
  6. Walking along the Embarcadero towards the Bay Bridge and the downtown ballpark
  7. Looking at the Golden Gate Bridge from the trail hidden on the western slope
  8. Walking up the Lyon Street Steps slowly while ogling the mansions at the top of Broadway
  9. Driving inside the Presidio and enjoying the new Vista spots that have killer views of the bay
  10. Riding my bike along Crissy Field and watching the windsurfers
  11. Sitting on a bench in Huntington Park during Christmas to stare at the lights in the trees with Grace Cathedral in the background
  12. Driving slowly along the Great Highway and watching the many tandem kite flyers along Ocean beach
  13. Going to North Beach to Stella Bakery and eating a slice of Sacripantina cake on the one hot day out of the year


  1. Is there anything better then #5?! One of my favorite views in the city.

  2. Hi Amie

    I love that view! With the underground reservoir there, you get a clear view all the way to Alcatraz.
