Walking across Pacific Heights is one of the many delightful experiences in San Francisco. Where else, in a short 1.4 miles from Van Ness Avenue to Lyon Street, does one see:

Two beautiful parks, each covering 4 city blocks

Pacific Heights park

Mansions of all descriptions: Victorians, Georgians, half-timbered, modern, classical

Pacific Heights mansions

Foreign consulates: German, Russian, Italian, Norwegian among them

Italian consulate in Pacific Heights

Mesmerizing views of San Francisco bay

View from top of Lyon Street stairs

Streets so steep they twist and turn their way down the hill--

or stop altogether and turn into staircases

Baker Street stairs

and a bit of whimsy to bring a smile to one's face

outdoor art on Broadway

Come find your San Francisco dream, and when you're here, get out and explore. You'll find a new experience on every walk.

Sorry you had trouble viewing the pictures, Tim. Maybe it was a temporary glitch?

Roy, perhaps a visit to San Francisco is in your "retirement" plans??

Robert, San Francisco's small physical size and hilly topography make it a unique and beautiful place indeed.

Laura, always something new to spot when out and about in San Francisco.
