Another free attraction. It was extremely busy. Luckily we ere able to find a parking spot at the main area. However, I recommend you lock all your valuables in the trunk which will be out of view as there are signs posted about this. In addition, we saw car window glass on the floor in a back parking lot.

The highest point in San Francisco, good location to take pictures of the city, but overall it is just that. It probably should be on your tourist list of things to do or see, but if crunched with time, easily something you can skip.

Sunny day drive up to Twin Peaks after a zany lunch in Haight Ashbury neighborhood made for a perfect afternoon! The view is indeed panoramic and stunning. Yes, the wind is strong, but invigorating. You can drive up, park and enjoy it all. For a little higher view you can go up to the top of the peak using the... More

Worth the drive to the top. Very windy when we were there and cloud was getting ready to return to the City. Quite crowded, but this doesn't spoil things. Worth seeing at night too.

Even though the view was spoiled by fog my wife and I loved the coach trip up and bracing air. There was an 83 year old artist at the top selling superb water colours of San Francisco one of which is now hanging on my wall!

This is a great free spectacle in San Francisco. Takes a little bit to find. But go up Market Street to the very end and keep going and eventaully you will see a sign for it on your right. The view is phenomenal, the whole city in front of you, the bay from the Ocean, pass the Golden Gate Bridge,... More

This SF mountain peak, the highest hill in the city, overlooking the entire bay from one central location, is the exact opposite of visiting Alcatraz! When you get to the top, it takes your breath away! I highly recommend going at both day and at night. If time limits you, go at dusk and stay til night. The lights are... More

Spetacular view of San Francisco. Possible to go there by car, but also by foot or bike. You should go there before the sun is setting and see the sunset and stay there a while till it gets dark. Bring a jacket as it might be windy.

Came here to take photos of the city. What a view! It's a very popular spot and can be quite busy during the day with heavy slow moving traffic, but it is well worth a visit.
