“Awesome view from the twin peaks”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 22, 2013

really breathtaking. The moment the tour bus turned into the peaks, the view from the top was awesome. A 'wow' from all the passengers, on seeing a view of the bay, from the twin peak top. It was a bright sunny day and we were lucky to get a complete view of the bay

“Only worth driving up on a clear day..”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 21, 2013

We had to drive up to the twin peaks twice, as the first time the weather conditions covered the views over the city.

On a nice day grab breakfast at starbucks and drive up to enjoy your coffee observing the view.
Its definately worth the 15/20 min drive from the city center,

We also drove up a night, where you could see the 100000 city lights, worth it as well.

Great spot to view the city, and lots of other people did the same. Very windy spot so dress warm, and take your camera. Incredible views.

“The best panoramic views of San Francisco, and it's free!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 20, 2013

20 minutes from downtown, Twin Peaks offers amazing panoramic views of San Francisco especially on a clear day. The day we went it was a bit hazy, but the view was amazing none the less! Bring a jacket (it can get windy) and a tripod (self portrait is a must) for amazing photos. There is plenty of parking and restrooms. We were there during the week mid morning and had the place all to ourselves!
Next time we visit will be at night, I can only imagine how great the view will be!
Hands down Twin Peaks offers the best panoramic views of San Francisco and it's free!!!
