San Francisco is one of the most prominent cities in California, especially as the economic and social hub for Northern California. Along with Oakland and San Jose, San Francisco is part of the nine-county San Francisco Bay Area, housing over seven million individuals in the metropolis.

This view of San Francisco is something both locals and tourists adore, especially for fans of Full House where the opening credits took place at this exact location at Alamo Square. On a clear day, one can see Downtown and environs, as well as Cathedral Square, Japantown, the Panhandle, and as far west as the Inner Richmond District, Inner Sunset neighborhood, and Golden Gate Park.

As for a view that not a lot of people get to see often unless they happen to know where to take excellent shots, here's a view from Treasure Island:
