If you're renting a car or taking a tour, Twin Peaks, on a clear day or evening, is one of the most beautiful FREE sights of San Francisco. On a clear day, you can see the Golden Gate Bridge, the Bay Bridge, Alcatraz and Angel Islands. On that same clear day, you can also see across the Bay to the... More

Great views but not much else up there. Wouldn't have minded a drink or a snack. Especially as our bus broke down up there.

If you can get up there as it is very busy, you will experience a really good view of the whole city. Whilst we were there we saw the fog roll in from both sides, it was amazing. It would have been nice to stay a bit longer but our schedule didn't allow it. Great place for photographs.

Must go fully prepared with a good jacket as it may be very windy and cold over there. Worth a visit as provides fine views of the city and golden gate bridge. Views of the pacific in the evening can sometimes be very interesting!

And Twin Peaks is where you get to see all of its magnificence at the same time. Rent a car (or something with an engine) if you are not quite the climber.

Twin Peak is a good place to view SF town, especially at night, it is very beautiful. However, i need to be ready to prepare jacket, its very cold there at night and heavy wind.

My wife Ali and I recently took my friends Warren, Sally and their two boys sightseeing in San Francisco. We hired a car for the day and first stop had to be Twin Peaks so they could see the great vista and what is the best view of all of San Francisco. We have been here before, the weather was... More

It is high up there, road twisting around to reach the peak overlooking the city of San Francisco. Cold and windy but the view is WOW! Unfortunately, it was foggy so we could only see part of the city and not the ocean but still fantastic.

Breathtaking view! I can stat here for hours just enjoying the view of SF Bay. I always go at night and hope for a night without fog. Make sure you dress warm because it's freezing up here. I couldn't feel my fingers as I was trying to take pictures with my camera.

I went up to twin picks as part of a tour so I was on a tour bus. This is a must do if you are in SF, the view is breath taking. It was foggy on and off when I went and the view was very nice when it cleared so I suggest you go on a clear day.... More
