Excellent place to be able to see all San Francisco and understand the plan of the town! A peak from which you can see 360 degrees around and a hit place for new year's eve.

This was definitely the best view of the city and the bay. It's a long steep twisty drive up but the views are breathtaking.

Climb up the hill to get a remarkable view of San Fran bay and city on one side and the North Pacific Ocean on the other. The tour buses haven't caught on enmasse yet, so thats a good thing !

Most people have seen SF downtown from the bay, but twin peaks offer another view that is equally spectacular from another perspective. I went there multiple times, the best time is around sunset because you get the epic night view after the sunset as well. It is a nice detour if you have a car to get there.

This is by far, the best attraction in San francisco,no entertainment,NO charge,just memories that will stay with you forever,I walked up from Castro,so a moderate level of fitness required as there are a huge amount of steps to climb.if you only make one visit,make sure there is no fog or cloud cover,views are spectacular.

not too far from city downtown. driving is a little tricky and uphill, a lot of turns so just drive cautiously. once u get to the top it will be all worth and the view of San Francisco downtown is unbelievable. just love to just sit and chill-out and very relaxing.
