Live the Nob Hill high life

From its tree-lined streets to its elegant Victorian homes, Nob Hill lives up to its reputation as San Francisco's most-coveted neighborhood. It was once home to North America's wealthiest railroad tycoons and has retained much of its old-world affluence. Spend your days shopping at high-end boutiques, exploring local day spas and wining and dining at world-class restaurants. While Nob Hill boasts some of the city's most-luxurious hotels, nothing beats having your own set of keys. From characterful Edwardian flats to luxury apartments, Nob Hill vacation rentals unlock access to a host of executive properties.

Things to do

Unique experiences in Nob Hill

With its grand Gothic facade, Grace Cathedral is a San Francisco icon. Venture inside and you can gaze up at the multicolored stained-glass windows and visit the moving AIDS Memorial Chapel. As well as daily services, the cathedral also offers candlelit meditation, spiritual yoga and other unique experiences. Want to know more about San Francisco's most-famous mode of transport? Head to the Cable Car Museum, which offers a fascinating insight into the historic trolleys that zip around the city's impossibly-steep streets.

Activities

Soak up the Nob Hill street scene

One of Nob Hill's best assets is its lively street scene. A stroll around the neighborhood will take you past sidewalk florists, exclusive day spas and sun-dappled sidewalk cafes. Want to stay local? Nob Hill vacation rentals put you in the heart of the neighborhood. When the sun sets, make a beeline for Polk Street, where you'll find the majority of Nob Hill's restaurants, bars and cocktail lounges. Venture east and you'll hit Chinatown. Fronted by the mighty Dragon's Gate, it's the largest Chinatown this side of Asia. Inside, you'll find a wonderland of dim sum restaurants, herbalists, Chinese bakeries, ethnic food stores and more.

Fall is a sweet spot in Nob Hill

Summer brings high season to the Bay Area, with warm temperatures and a lively line-up of seasonal events and festivals. San Francisco locals will reveal that fall is a sweet spot. You'll enjoy clear skies, mild temperatures and thinner crowds. Of course, the Bay Area has a rainy reputation so be prepared for drizzle and fog at any time of the year. Weather not co-operating?
