Tips from locals
Although this spot has great views period, I think it offers the best panorama of the city at night. There is something incredibly charming about seeing the city from this site as the sun is setting and then watching all the lights from a distance at night. NOTE: I do not suggest actually hiking…
This is another great place to visit if you’re in for great photos, you can see the whole city from here, dress warm here because is usually very cold due to the elevation and occasionally fog.
A leisurely hike if you’re feeling active, or a scenic drive if you’re not. Either way the views from the top can’t be beat. It looks straight down Market Street to the historic Ferry Building and panoramic views of the whole city.
Want a spectacular 360 degree view of San Francisco? Head for the top of Twin Peaks, San Francisco.
Twin Peaks is iconic for it's incredible views from up top San Francisco. I took this photo on a beautiful, sunny spring day. You can literally see forever.
