  • The geographic center of the city with an amazing view! As seen on Travel Channels The Layover with Anthony Bourdain.
  • Take in Le View. It may convince you that San Francisco is the best city on earth.
  • Ignore the usual tourist railing and walk up the lone peak just to the south for stellar and secret views. Steal a kiss or two while youre at it! #vday
  • When people come in from out of town, they all want to see the Golden Gate Bridge. Take em here instead. With beautiful views of the cityscape worthy of a Will Pearson photo, theyll forget the rest.
  • Most complete & breathtaking view of the city, bridge to bridge. And almost every part of the city from one spot, all except the sunset, but you'd only see fog there anyways. Pano that ess.

  • Bring a nice THICK jacket!
  • Twin Peaks, a sixty-four-acre mix of grassland and coastal scrub, offers 180-degree views that will give you a glimpse of what San Francisco looked like in its natural state prior to development.

  • Pick a cold clear morning, around 8am. Put a Sigur Ros album on your iPod. Climb to the top of the hill and look around. Feel at peace with the world.
  • The vistas from up here are incredible. On days sans fog, one can see from the Golden Gate Bridge all of the way to the other side of the summit.
