Although we are of a different faith, we felt comfortable at the Cathedral. The stained glass, murals, and paintings are stunning. There is a small AIDS memorial chapel with a beautiful and touching quilt and symbols of a number of different religions. Well worth visiting.

Lovely, grounds and surrounding area. So many gorgeous buildings get lost in big cities. It's worth taking a walk around!

Nob Hill
Swanky and stylish, Nob Hill sits in the heart of the
city and is home to amazing architecture and views.
The hike to the top can be a challenging workout for
those who forego a cable car ride, but they will be
rewarded with some of the city’s most beautiful
architecture adorning its peak. Originally populated
with mansions after the Gold Rush, most if not all
were devastated in the 1906 earthquake and fire that
