It's almost always very VERY cold and windy, so dress warm. The photos you take will be phenom - you can't lose. It's an awesome view - like nowhere else in the city. Well worth the shlepp. But did I mention, dress warm?

Great view from the top. Pretty chilly and windy from up their but the view of the city makes up for it. Specially liked the view of market street from up here.

Take advantage of the beautiful photo ops in the daytime or at night. Although it's always "tourist season" in SF this vantage point is most crowded on weekends and major holidays.

Probably the best view of SF. A bit of a drive but worth it. Parking is free too. Make sure you go up on a clear day. Views of SF, Alcatraz etc

This is one place where most tourists and locals would flock to to get a breathtaking view of the city. Poised high above the city's ground level (that is if you can find a flat place to call ground level in SF) this offers the perfect vantage point to look at the city dotted with the beautiful houses giving way...

The drive to Twin Peaks is definitely a much when you vacation in SAN Francisco. It is the perfect place for those who want a phenomenal view without having to hike very much. The walk to the top of the peak is worth the breathtaking hike😊

What a great way to be in the heart of the city and feel like you're away from everything. I just love it. It's a beautiful view and a must visit. The neighborhood is amazing as well. I really miss being there!

Went at 10 at night and the lookout was PACKED! Beautiful views of the entire city. Apparently the sunset is supposed to be amazing!

We saw many tourist spots but undoubtedly Twin peak was the best, view of the whole bay and the city is fantastic and the drive up the hill too is great. It is so peaceful up there, we spent a whole afternoon there just siting down and enjoying the view and peace and quiet.

I thought I had seen enough views out on to the bay and the ocean from the bridge, from above many streets, from Berkeley looking back over..but this view is spectacular.
