501 Twin Peaks Boulevard, San Francisco, CA, United States
NileGuide Expert tip:
Be sure to bring a jacket, as it can get windy at the top.
These two mountains located in San Francisco's geographic heart offer stunning panoramic views of the Golden Gate Bridge and verdant Marin County to the north, the Bay Bridge winding toward the hills in the east, Silicon Valley sprawl to the south, the sparkling sea to the west, and the undulating cityscape below. The best time to go is dusk, when sunset casts a mauve glow in the sky and the city lights start to twinkle. Visiting Twin Peaks is a romantic must as well as a photographer's dream.
