Catch a Sunrise at Ina Coolbrith Park

Rate this Adventure San Francisco Ina Coolbrith Park

Added by Lisa Bao

Amazing views of the San Francisco skyline reward you after a quick and steep uphill walk.

This tucked away neighborhood gem is less than a square block in size, but offers some of the best views of San Francisco. After a quick, but steep, 5 minute walk, you'll be rewarded with incredible views of: the city skyline, Coit Tower, Alcatraz, and the Bay Bridge. There are a few benches available for you to sit and catch the sunrise/sunset, or enjoy some packed food while you take in the views.

It's a quiet and clean spot that many neighborhood dogs often visit during their morning stroll, so definitely a good place to find some tranquil moments amidst the city hustle and bustle.

Park around Taylor/Pacific in Nob Hill and walk up Taylor for about 5 minutes to get to this spot.

If coming for sunset, go to Coit Liquor or New Russian Hill Market and grab a bottle of wine to enjoy at the top.

The town of Mendocino is as charming and quaint as one can find. It is no wonder why it was pegged as the perfect location spot to film the series Murder She Wrote.

This beach is really easy to get to. Just follow Pierce Point Road until you see the sign to the beach. It's an easy hike down from the parking lot.
