Quintessentially San Francisco, Telegraph Hill overlooks the ceaseless activity along the city’s waterfront. This picturesque neighborhood’s immaculate homes preside over its hillsides at the foot of the iconic Coit Tower—a classic San Francisco structure boasting spectacular views of the bay. Exploring this soaring neighborhood usually requires an uphill hike, but its stunning architecture, hidden staircases, and the chance to glimpse its flock of wild parrots (really!) make the trek worth it.See places to stay Save this neighborhood
The Timeless Taste of Telegraph Hill
It is in a perfect location to explore San Francisco -- within walking distance of Coit Tower on Telegraph Hill, Fisherman's Wharf, and Fort Mason, and, if you have time, you can walk to the Golden Gate Bridge. It's a great neighborhood. People seem to know each other and it feels safe."
