I'll best you can imagine fantastic tiled steps from where you are sitting right now. Maybe you're a tiled-step aficionado? If not, just imagine them from where you are sitting.

If you want an absolutely stunning view of San Francisco, then this is your spot. But the interesting thing is that the fun begins before you reach the top! The stairs are simply a beautiful peace of art. There are such amazing patterns and designs...More

There are 2 sets of stairs so make sure you keep climbing. The stairs themselves are very pretty and once you get to the top, there’s an overlook you can go up. That was the best part of the site. Gives perfect 360 views of...More

Made a quick stop at the tiled steps on our way out of town. There is very little parking in this area. The steps are neat and the view is nice.

This is strictly a residential neighborhood. The nearest restaurant is 3 blocks down the hill to the left. You can enjoy the plants while the kids play and keep an eye on your vehicle.
