If you're searching for all the San Francisco heart art pieces scattered throughout the city, you'll find one here as well. The Presidio and Palace of Fine Arts are nearby, so you have a few other destinations to visit in the area.

If you start at the base of the steps (green St and Lyon) be prepared for a really good workout. These stairs never get easier but you'll always feel accomplished (and sore the next morning)

Stop and stare at the panoramic view of ocean, bridge, and little sail boats that'll seem like floating toys. This famous stair case is set up in the Presidio, one of the highest hilltops in San Fran and filled with incredible mansion homes. The steep staircase and garden are a popular spot for joggers to break a quick sweat - you can choose to join in or take a few pictures and continue on.

Great place to run the stairs and work out! It also has an amazing view. Go straight down the stairs to get to presidio and walk over to the palace of fine arts. The Lyon st stairs is famous for being the hub of intense work out sessions.
