Originally named California Hill, because it sits on California and Powell Street, Nob Hill is central to Union Square, Chinatown, North Beach and Fisherman’s Wharf. Enjoy a sunset cocktail from a skyscraper bar overlooking the city, see a concert at the Masonic, or just relax at Huntington Park. Whatever you do, make sure not to miss the panoramic view of the whole city from the top of the hill. But don’t sweat. If you prefer not to climb the steep hill, enjoy a cable car ride to the top – or straight to the Cable Car Museum.
