Swanky San Francisco Neighborhood
California & Taylor
San Francisco, CA 94108
Swanky Nob Hill is one of San Francisco's more groomed, genteel districts. Historically, it was where the city's elite built their mansions to escape the more roguish Waterfront and Chinatown districts, then infamously known as the Barbary Coast. Nob Hill is now a wealthy residential district with plenty of unique and elegant shopping spots to pass the time. At the center you'll find Huntington Square, with its replica of Rome's Fountain of the Tortoises, its marble cherubs and dolphins lit with halogen in the evening. Nob Hill is home to the Fairmont and InterContinental, San Francisco's most famous hotels. Check out the Cable Car Museum, the independent Lumiere theater, or many of Nob Hill's chic bars and boutiques. From Nob hill, it is easy to get to Union Square, Chinatown, and the Tenderloin.
