Twin Peaks is located in the city, so you can do the visit in relatively short time. The views are stunning. You can go by car the whole way up but I noticed some visitors taking a hiking tour from half way.

Great and breathtaking view over the whole San Francisco area. Beautiful but very windy. Definitely worth to visit.

Best tourist spot is Twin Peaks. Twin Peaks is the highest point in San Francisco. Very cold and windy, so dress accordingly. Twin Peaks is relaxing. Best time to go is early in the morning or sunset. Make this part of your list of attractions. I have a fear of heights and I made the journey.

This is a very busy spot. Lots of busses, tons of people. lots of trash. But a nice place to see the city. great place to take your tourist friends.

On a clear day the Twin Peaks Lookout is well worth a visit. We went here on a lovely calm, cloudless sunny day, without a hint of mist. Apart from the view of San Francisco city and suburbs below us, we had a clear view across San Francisco Bay to Oakland and right down south to San Mateo Bridge and... More

Head up to Twin Peaks on a clear day for the best overall view of the city. Or head up there on a foggy day and you may end up above the fog for a surreal view of SF

Make an effort to get up to Twin Peaks...it's the best view of the city! There is limited parking and some cars park along the hill going up, so be careful of pedestrians walking and not paying attention to the passing cars.

This is a place, from where you can see whole city. The view is spectacular over downtown, Fishermans Wharf, Golden Gate Bridge,Golden Gate Park, all the hills etc.There is sometimes very windy, because the place is so high, but the feeling is very peaceful over there. To there is quite diffucult to find, if you do not have good maps... More
