Enjoyed going to Twin Peaks and seeing the city & bay at a different angle. Worth the drive to get there!

It's a bit of a drive up a winding road to get to this viewpoint, but it's great when you get up there. You can see the entire city and the bay from up here. It's perfect! I'm not sure if it is always like this, but the day we went up there, it was VERY windy! With the wind,... More

Great urban hike from below the hill. Lots of crowds and tour buses. Be careful on the top of the hill ... The wind can literally blow you off your feet! My husband and I enjoyed our time there and really loved touring the surrounding neighborhood on foot before catching the bus back to our apartment.

The best view of the city is from the top of Twin Peaks. And it's free.....seems like there is always a crowd (even in the fog) and you get to see many nationalities oohing and ahhhhing about our city; you can see for miles in 3 directions......and close by looking west.

Wear your jackets with hoods!!!! We went up there in April on a drizzle wet morning and got some sun as well but still CHILLY! Still glad we did this because we're from Atlanta and once a lifetime experience!

Loved the view of San Francisco from here, however, it is weather dependent, rainy days may not be the best time to get up here. Very busy and please make sure to park in the appropriate areas if you're driving a car.
