Best Place to Watch a Sunset Over the Ocean San Francisco 2013 - Grand View Park
Watching the sun set over the ocean is a definite perk of living on the West Coast, and there are dozens of places to take in the sight, including the Ocean Beach promenade and Sutro Heights Park. But for an even more spectacular, panoramic view, a little climb of some stairs brings a big payoff. The aptly-name Grand View Park in the Sunset allows for 360-degree views of the city, and a wide-open view of the sun's descent over the Pacific. A bonus is the mosaic stairs that lead up to the hill from Noriega Street and 16th Avenue, which are nearly worth a trip just to see in themselves.
