The Lyon Street Steps


The Lyon Street Steps are one of eight different stairways that can be found in San Francisco. The steps are located on Lyon St. right outside the Presidio. They serve a purpose as they facilitate a direct access between Green St (the top). to Vallejo St (in the middle) and to Broadway (at the bottom end). There are some really cool houses on Lyon, so these steps are major throughway for the people that live there. I went on an overcast day but it was still had some amazing views and landscaping:

Ok, if you have read this blog for any length of time or have followed me on Intsagram, you know I get happy when I see one of the big Hearts and Heroes sculptures:



The Lyon Street Steps are another one of those cool things to do in San Francisco that no many know about. It is usually used by people doing their aerobic workout. If you go enjoy everything but stay out of the way of people's workouts (LOL)

  2. Wow. This is my kind of tour. I LOVE landscape pictures. What stands out the most to me is the tall tree between the buildings and the actual stairs themselves.

  4. Great pics! Love that stately home! And those steps are extreme. We live on a steep hill (a corner property) that is popular for runners and joggers - even whole groups of people! We watch from the comfort of our balcony! Lol :D

  15. Visited SF for first time few years ago, but didn't have time for much so only did the touristy sites. Wish I'd known more or see your post regarding the steps and such beforehand. Thanks for sharing a bit of your area in your photos.

  25. San Francisco is really pretty in some areas. This is one of those areas that you can relax and enjoy the scenery on a walk. The architecture and history of some of those places is also interesting.
