Smack in the middle of the city is this random hill. On a clear day, you can see not only San Francisco, but much of the Bay Area. Come here for a great view of the Golden Gate Bridge, Ocean Beach, Golden Gate Park, the Bay Bridge, downtown, and even Oakland. There's no question that this is an excellent photo... More

Even when it's foggy and windy (much of the time!), the views of SF and the Bay, and the atmosphere are wonderful up here.

Twin Peaks has some of the most amazing views over San Francisco as you can see so much of the city. It is one of my must places to take visitors. It is not the easiest place to get to if you do not have a car as it is a long walk up hill from all of the MUNI... More

Wonderful panoramic views of the whole city! Fortunately we were with a coach tour so did not have the unfortunate experience of another reviewer re theft of valuables.

if it is a fine day, the view from twin peaks is stunning - and include the city, the Golden Gate and Bay bridges - and a lot of the Bay Area. The drive up the Twin Peaks is a series of corkscrew turns - a lot of fun if you do not suffer from car sickness. It is usually... More

A short drive from the main city, the Twin Peaks provides you with a fantastic panoramic view of San Francisco. There is no charge and and you can spend as much time as you wish enjoying the wonderful views. This was our last experience before travelling home and sadly the visit was ruined by the fact our car was broken... More

... but so is the rest of San Fran. The view up here is worth it though - it really is a breath-taking view. Hold on to your hat as it can be pretty windy up there!

What a view. Well, I guess San Francisco is all about views. But this location is amazing. Easy to access by car. Don't know about public transportation . No picnic area, which is a shame.
