Grand View Park (a.k.a., Turtle Hill) offers one of the best 360-degree views of San Francisco.
From its peak, you can see right over Golden Gate Park and the entire Sunset and Richmond Districts. On some days, you can see the fog rolling over the entire city.
On clear days, you can even see the the towers of the Golden Gate Bridge, just past the Presidio.
If you plan to visit Turtle Hill, be sure to stop by the Moraga steps. They can be found just west of the bottom of the hill on Moraga and 16th Avenue.
The stairs are covered with beautifully colored mosaic designs of fish, stars, the sky, and other objects.
I assure you that all one hundred sixty-three steps of the Moraga stairs will be worth it. So STEP IT UP and stop by the VIEWtiful Turtle Hill! Have you been there? Tell me your Turtle Hill story…
