"Ina Coolbrith and the Ramps"

Talyor Street is a long largely residential street but for me it is almost all about the Ina Coolbrith Park and the Vallejo Ramps. Both are on Russian Hill by the corner with Vallejo. You can hike up them admire the great architecture get a bit of green in the middle of you city living. Ina Coolbrith is a small park but the stonework of the steps makes them well worth the visit.

Farther south along Taylor in the Nob HIll area you also get some pretty good eateries like the Nob Hill Cafe, the Rue St. Jacques and the Vetticello Cafe all great places to go for a bite. The Nob Hill and the Vetticello are great for pasta and wine, with Nob Hill being the better value and the V being more of a higher end place.

I'm not as big of a fan of the Huntington Park as I am of the Huntington Hotel, but that could be a good place to go as well.

"Beautiful Scenic Tours"

Bay City Bike Rentals gives you a great way to get out and see this beautiful city while working off that lavish dinner you took down last night. You can rent your own bike and create your own adventure, but I opted to go with the guided tour. It leaves at 10 am, so you don't have to wake up too early, and it is well worth it. Take in great views of the bay as you coast down the California shoreline...the best part: no big hills make for a relatively relaxing trip!

"Perfect place to stay a night when in SF"

Taylor St is at the heart of San Francisco. If you’re planning to visit museums, galleries or go shopping go to Taylor St. It is a safe and quiet street with some good and inexpensive hotels, like Mark Twain, that offer a good night’s sleep and a superb English breakfast tailored to the most health conscious visitors. However, if you are driving, do not leave the car with the hotel service, leave it in the public parking that is on the other side of the street. I kwft mmine with the hotel staff and had to wait for more than 2 hours for them to bring it back to me when I checked out.

"Over Crowed Street"

This street is one way only and has a high amount of traffic on it at all times. Parking is very hard to find at times. The street is in nned of repair and the trees are over grown and nned to be cut. There is some studio apartments and stors as well. I would only live hear if it was a last resort. It is extremely expensive to live here and resturants are expensive as well.

"Well I guess it's cool..."

Yeah, this is a pretty cool street, but I wouldn't exactly call it a must see if you are only visiting San Fran for a short time. It is pretty close to some cool stuff, but I really wouldn't spend a heck of a lot of time here. I would mainly use it as a route to other much more interesting streets, and there are a lot of those in San Fransisco.

"Quiet for a city street"

This street is quiet, especially for a city street. if you are someone looking for action and noise, and all that comes with living in the city, this is not the street for you. It isn't far from the attractions, but living here, you would never imagine you were anywhere near anything but a long stretch of street. It is great for retirees and families with children.
