    this is part two of my tips on SNOB Hill, again I am sort of biased since I find the Views in View Lounge Better than the Top of the Mark. Nob Hill, besides the home of San Francisco's Big Four (Leland Stanford, Collis Huntington, Mark Hopkins and Charles Crocker) and Nice views of Car Chases in the movies, the Snob Hill is also the home of the Big four (the Fairmont Hotel, the Mark Hopkins Intercontinental Hotel, the Stanford Court, and the Huntington Hotel) Hotels and the Iconic Grace Cathedral and Masonic Center.

    Grace Cathedral

    by heryanta Written Sep 2, 2007

    Located at Nob Hill this Gothic style church from the 20's is known for its open mindedness and tolerance to teachings outside the Bible.

    On a sunny day it is nice to sit on a bench in the front yard. On the small park there will be people reading, lying in the sun or meditating.

    On the floor of the Cathedral there's a labyrinth and it is often said if you look down and follow the path you will get to a meditative state ... funny, I get that from martini's :p
