    The geographic center of the city – with an amazing view! As seen on Travel Channel’s The Layover with Anthony Bourdain.

    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 you’re at it! #vday

    Take in Le View. It may convince you that San Francisco is the best city on earth.

    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.

    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, they’ll forget the rest.

    Bombing down from Twin Peaks on a bike - The view of the city is stunning, and the ride down is the most fun we've had since grade school.

    Nice view during the day, and even better at night. I honestly have brought almost ever guy that I have dated up here and no complaints about it. I love the scenery at night, the city lights up :)

    Go to Twin Peaks on foot. It is an especially enjoyable view after you've hiked up the hill. Go on, you can do it.

    Amber Dubya · August 5, 2009

    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 clearest views are after rain clouds have gone through or after cold & windy days!

    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.

  • Heath E.

    Bring a jacket! Can be very windy/cold, but also, it's one of the coolest spots in San Francisco. Take pictures overlooking the entire city.

    Heath Edwards · March 24, 2013
  • Cherrie C.

    It's windy up there and the wooden steps are filled with rocks but once you've made it to the top, you realize it's totally worth the climb.

    Beautiful view of San Francisco. Just make sure it isn't Foggy when you go.

  • Richard R.

    One of the most amazing views of any city in the country. It's the heart so you get a 360 view. Look for the spots you want to visit. Windy.
