Climb the brick steps of 16th Street, and my friend and I took some time to climb the top of Grand View Park (Grand View Park). The park is free of charge and there is a spectacular 360 degree view of the city. We were there at dusk and were planning to see a beautiful sunset, unfortunately the clouds that appeared in San Francisco were not quite as satisfactory. Since there are bare roots and muddy paths at the top, you need to plan on footwear that is suitable for walking. Also bring your coat, no matter how much sweat you sweat, the wind is very strong on the top of the mountain. I can imagine how many people there will be on the weekends, so if possible, go up on a weekday. Grandview Park has perfect endings for my California vacation.
It is the most beautiful place in the city to see the evening, and it can almost bring the city sunset panoramic view into view. The city's night scene is very colorful, and the sky at sunset is beautiful because of the blue sky and white clouds during the day, and you can look out into the distance. It's certainly romantic to bring someone you love here. The people seem to like walking around with dogs, many of them barking and chasing each other up and down the hill. My wife is a photographer and if you are, it's a great photo opportunity.
The mosaic staircase (Mosaic stairs) at the intersection of 16th Avenue (16th Avenue Tiled Steps) in San Francisco, 163 steps are composed of 75,000 tile fragments, mirrors and stained glass, depicting a dream world from the sun to the sea floor, and is known as the most beautiful staircase in the world. It's beautiful to see. The end of the pick-up is Grand View Park that overlooks the panoramic view of West San Francisco. This sprawling mosaic staircase takes two artists over two years to hand-finish. The staircase is lined with flowers and succulents, and it is a walk up the hill without feeling tired, with a large mosaic of porcelain written by the family of local residents who contributed to the staircase.
GrandView Park in SFs sunset district IS the reward after scale 2 sets of stairs. The rewwrd is of course views of the sunset all the way to the ocean. Great spot to catch sunset in the City
One shot of the 360 degree views of San Francisco! Photos don't do it justice!
The steps are an undertaking but well worth it for the view!
If there's only one off-the-beaten-path thing you do while in SF, make it this. Start at the base of the Moraga steps on the west side and prepare for a very long, but oh so scenic, climb. Picturesque views along the entire way up. Keep going up the wooden stairs to the very top and you will find yourself looking at my favorite views of the city, North Bay, and Pacific Ocean. Usually not more than 2 or 3 other people there, tops, and bring a windbreaker.
can't believe I have lived in the Bay Area so long and had never been to this charming spot in the inner sunset yet! aptly named "grand view park" for the extremely rewarding views at the top of the 16th avenue tile steps (and then moraga steps).
