On one of our trips we went up here. It was sunny but a bit breezy but the views all around were tremendous. Must be the best place anywhere to view San Francisco and perhaps the only other way to get as good or better view would be to fly.

But one of the best things about San Francisco is that you have great views almost everywhere. Granted, this one is one of the better overall views you can get and permits the post-card style panoramas. My wife and I used to hike up here from the Castro, as a way to get some exercise and a view it's a... More

Best View of the city but take a coat because it can be windy. You can really see how it's it the city is laid out. It's also a great place to make out

Twin Peaks is an excellent place to get a "lay of the Land" when looking at the City by the Bay. As long as the fog stays away, you can see from the Ocean down the Peninsula.

If time allow us we always passed in the place to see the whole picture of San Francisco. The place never emptied, there are always people there because we live nearby there before. It is very worth the good panoramic view of San Francisco.

The only bad thing about this place is parking. It is very limited. Otherwise, this is an excellent place to go to get some great views of San Francisco and the bay. I went with my husband just at sunset, and it was wonderful to watch the sky change as the sun went down. There are great picture opportunities here!

We went during day and night. It is a great view at night. It is amazing that you can see the bay bridge and golden gate from there and take great shots.

We stopped by this location as a part of a purchased tour. The views from this location of the city are magnificent! The day we went was a clear day and the entire city was clear to see. Definitely bring your camera!

Truly a panoramic view of the city. We were there on a Wednesday at 1:00 and not too crowded. We picked up some sandwiches and sat in our car as it was chilly and windy overlooking the incredible view.
