People tend to check in during these times:
Hit four beaches at once (Rodeo, Tennessee Valley, Pirates Cove, and Muir)
Lots of great hiking trails!
Driving over the Golden Gate, take your first left and wrap around into the Marin Headlands, the lush preserve that offers the most breathtaking vistas in the Bay Area, foggy or bright-skied.
Throw all your problems into the ocean from the top of Hill 88
Difficult to access without a car, but this scenic drive has stunning views.
nice trail to walk. nice view. can be really chilly when it's windy
Scenic views of the Golden Gate Bridge
Sea, sun, nap...
No words needed
Go by bike in the morning before it gets crowded
Hike or cycle all the way to the top. Gorgeous 360˚ views of the area!
Great view on the Golden gate bridge!!
Lots of paths to explore. Bridge/lighthouse with limited times, check before you make the trip.
One of most beautiful and most remote places you can find in a major metro
Be prepared for a hike to and from the beach!
Just across the Golden Gate Bridge, get panoramic, romantic views of the bridge, San Francisco skyline, the Bay, the ocean and beyond. Beautiful whether clear or fogged over.
Drive as up as possible to get an amazing view of th bridge and city !
See the city from its best side. The last exit before the GG Bridge going South. Drive up the coastal road at sunset and enjoy your view back down. Seriously, it will take your breath away.
If you want to see lots of stuff, this is a good place to do it.
If you're visiting the Bay Area, stop by here on the final day. It'll leave you with a beautiful memory.
Take the coastal path to get the best views.
Try to get the 1st or 2nd parking cluster. Anything after that is too far.
Good for photographer to take a really nice pics 😍
Great views of the city and the hiking isn't too shabby either!
It's cold there.
This is the best spot for photography!
Nike missile site with actual nike missiles (deactivated) and Marin mammal center are both with a look
If you live in SF and you're ever feeling blue, have a seat on a bench and marvel at the view- see, you're life isn't THAT bad. After, bring nibbles for a serene picnic on the bunkers up the road.
Check the forecast before coming. The fog ruins the view
National Park Service did a helluva job. Must have cost a fortune. Visit to enjoy your tax dollars & the view.
Looking at the Iowa after it sailed under the Golden Gate Bridge.
Great spot for a photo op, 1st vista point is the best I think cause you are looking along side the golden gate. At the top you're looking at the side of the bridge.
You can see nearly everything from here. Clear day? Look for the Farallons.
Nothing to see here. Move along, folks.
Heading north bound over the Golden Gate Bridge skip the crowded "Vista Point" and take the next exit toward the Marin Headlands. The view of the city and bridge is surreal from up there.
If you're here in the park, stop by the visitor center for a free trail map! If you want to spend the night, head to the hostel on Rosenstock road! It's a great & affordable place to stay!
For wider views go up to the third stop, left at the roundabout going towards the battery.
Make sure to travsl off the beaten path! There're so many cool old structures to run around on!
Unobstructed views of one of the most gorgeous cities in the world. You can see it all from here, the Golden Gate, Alcatraz, The TransAmerica Pyramid, Coit Tower.
Words cannot say. AWESOME VIEW. Try it at sunrise and sunset.
Romantic place to go! Great picture taking!
Drive up Conzelman Road to Hawk Hill, it's the furthest you can go before having to turn around or drive down the one way road. Hawk Hill is the best place to take photos of the city & the bridge.
Hope you're either contemplating the rest of your life or attempting to make out with someone all the way up here...
Awesome view at sunset and nighttime.
Stop at the 1st or 2nd pullout up the Morin Headlands. Both offer stunning views and photo opportunities of the Golden Gate Bridge and surrounding landscape.
enjoy the vistas from the top
across the GG bridge, exit Alexander, turn left
the headlands offer amazing hiking, and they are just over the bridge - hit up Hill 88 for a good afternoon hike and some amazing views of San Fran; when there is no fog ;-)
