Twin Peaks is known as the best view of the city, but I went on a rainy November day and had to peer through the clouds and rain while hoisting an umbrella. Even on a cloudy day, it was easy to pick out the financial district, AT&T Park, Candlestick Park, and the Bay Bridge. Unfortunately, we could not see the Golden Gate Bridge, or even much of the bay itself, certainly not Oakland nor Alcatraz!

I returned on a clear night in April and got to enjoy a wonderful view of the city. On this Sunday night around 10pm the parking lot was full despite the cold winds. The sky was crystal clear and we could see all the way to Oakland and to the Golden Gate Bridge.

From downtown, Twin Peaks is at the end of Market Street. From any other direction, Twin Peaks would be difficult to find without a map, but you can search for Twin Peaks Blvd on your favorite mapping website such as Google Maps.

Address: 501 Twin Peaks Blvd., San Francisco, CA 94114
Directions: The easiest way to get to the Peaks is to follow Market Street to its end, then continue on Portola Drive until you see the entrance to Twin Peaks on the right.
