I know a lot of people are willing to fork out more money for a better view (and higher floor) at their apartments, but that's never really been very important to me. It's not like I spend hours looking out the window. In fact, I barely glance at it. Sometimes the difference of a good view and a not-so-good view can range from hundreds of dollars. What do you think — is a good view worth paying more?

Recently, I took you with me to Sam's Chowder House in Half Moon Bay, CA, a restaurant with a great view of the Pacific Ocean. I've always been a fan of restaurants that offer views of something other than the parking lot or the dry cleaners across the street — although, of course, it's also important that the establishment keeps it focus on the food, too.
In addition to Sam's, I also happen to love the sweeping bay windows that overlook Ocean Beach (and the Pacific) at The Beach Chalet. And in Chicago, nothing beats The Signature Room, especially at night. Tell me: What are your favorite scenic restaurants?
I wish this were the view from my front porch! It's actually the view from a farm stay at a cabin I visited in New Zealand a few years ago.
I also love the view from my home's deck, but I've lived in a few other places where the view was less than desirable. What's it like at your casa?
In E.M. Forster's A Room with a View, on holiday in Italy, Miss Honeychurch and Miss Bartlett are vexed to find out that their views are not quite they were hoping for, and then an elderly man and his son offer to trade rooms, presenting them with perfect views. This encounter proves to be important to the plot. In cities like New York, a perfect view can mean a difference of millions of dollars in real estate prices. Tell me, what's your view? Unless, the back of your home is a concrete wall, you're bound to have more than one — which do you prefer? Show me what you're looking at these days by posting a photo in the Su Casa group, and give me the scoop by commenting below!
Do you have a favorite view? Mine is the Golden Gate Bridge right before sunset on a warm day. The sky turns an orange yellow color, a sure sign of another gorgeous day to come. No matter how many times I see that sight, it never gets old.
We all know the saying, a picture is worth a thousands words, so if you could choose one view to admire from your bedroom window, everyday, do tell what would be your view of choice?
