We went to the Twin Peaks in November 2016, we are stunned with the views in front of us! That particular day was very sunny but cool and the view was so clear that we had seen all the buildings, roads and trees down below. We could even see the Golden Gate Bridge and the Acaltraz clearly from here. We... More

So pleased we ventured up to twin peaks. I was on a Mission to find great photo opportunities. So twin peaks was outstanding. Maybe 10-15 min up the hill from the centre of the city. Takes you to the highest point looking down at the whole of the city and the golden gate Bridge. Utterly fantastic views. Can't be beaten.... More

It seems like not many people no about this amazing view point and a shame that is but what is the majorities misfortune, you must make it into your good fortune. This is truly a beautiful and quiet way to see one amazing view of the city. Only a short bus from the city.

On a clear and sunny day (like when we visited) you can see forever. This is a great spot to see the city of San Francisco along with the Golden Gate Bridge! We were there the morning of January 1st and it was completely deserted. I recommend going in the morning when tourists are sparse as I can see it... More

Great spot to see the city of San Francisco along with the Golden Gate Bridge! However, be careful of individuals targeting tourists. As I was walking down the peak after a couple of pictures, we saw a white sedan pull near my rental car. I got suspicious because the white car did not fully park and was angled in a... More

We drove up on a cool and rainy day. At first the clouds obscured the view but we waited awhile and it cleared. We could see the city, Alcatraz and all the way to the Golden Gate Bridge.

This was my favorite place I visited in San Francisco! I actually liked it so much I went twice: the first time was part of a tour then I came back at sunset to get some nighttime photos to compare. There are stunning panoramic views of the city and lots of room to take photos. Beware that since you are... More

this is THE spot to watch the city, it is changing constantly, fog, light, and clear sky day or night, they are all beautiful to see. it could be cold up there so bring your coat. it is busy most of the time, make sure not to leave your car open or with valuables!!!

Not an easy place to find without a GPS if you're driving there. But once you're there, the views of the city are breathtaking. Great place to take long exposure night time pictures. It might be cold and windy there and parking might be challenging, so grab the first spot available that you see, especially if it's before you get... More
