The 10 Most Beautiful Spots in SF
Get the camera ready
In San Francisco, there’s almost too much beauty to go around. But sometimes that’s hard to remember in the middle of winter when it’s raining nonstop. So we decided to round up some of our favorite places, all Instagram-ready, to remind you of sunnier days. Drumroll, please.
THE TOP OF NOB HILL FROM HUNTINGTON PARK
Ah, Nob Hill. Take a seat at Huntington Park while you gaze upon the stunning surroundings: Grace Cathedral, the Fairmont Hotel, Top of the Mark and the Pacific-Union Club.
THE PAINTED LADIES
From Full House to Fuller House, these beauties never get old.
PALACE OF FINE ARTS
A relic of the 1915 Panama-Pacific International Exposition, this architectural marvel is one of our all-time favorites…even if it is the default site for engagement photos and tourist snapshots.
JAPANTOWN PEACE PAGODA
Meet us under the uniquely circular Peace Pagoda—which was gifted to SF from sister city Osaka, Japan, in 1968—for a selfie and then walk with us over to the futuristic St. Mary’s Cathedral, a Star Wars-meets-Frank Gehry mash-up.
FINE ARTS MUSEUMS OF SAN FRANCISCO
De Young and Legion of Honor, you couldn’t be more different, but we heart you both for your striking facades.
LANDS END LABYRINTH
The great stone labyrinth, created by Eduardo Aguilera in 2004, was destroyed by vandals in 2015, but a group of Good Samaritans helped reassemble it for visitors and locals to enjoy all over again…and we’re absolutely smitten.
It’s cliché for a reason, but we’re so happy the legendary Cliff House restaurant just won't quit. It’s stood its ground since 1863, resurfacing after explosions, earthquakes and fires.
You had us at fancy food hall, but you’re a sight for sore eyes, too.
A national park right inside city limits. How could we be so lucky?
If you’re going to tie the knot in a civil ceremony, you might as well do it at one of the most gorgeous city halls in the entire country.
