Catch a Sunset at Twin Peaks

San Francisco Twin Peaks Summit

Added by

Arriving at Twin Peaks at night offers a special chance to see the city lit up in all its glory on clear nights you are even able to see Berkeley and San Jose.

Most locals have heard of Twin Peaks, so if you hop in an Uber or Taxi you should be just fine. If not or you are driving yourself, head for Twin Peaks Boulevard, then just follow it to the top. Voila!

When you're there, be sure to catch a sunset, as it is absolutely breath-taking, If you are luck Karl the Fog will roll in like a tidal wave of fog engulfing everything. It truly is a unique site

Pack List

Be sure to pack a jacket as it can get winding and cold up at Twin Peaks even during the summer. Once the sun goes down the temperature really drops.Besides that bring your camera and someone to share the sunset with, trust me it is worth it.

Twin Peaks is one of the most frequented panoramic views of SF, but for great reason! It is easily accessible and gives 360° views of the city. Start at the bottom for a little bit or exercise or park/get dropped of right at the top! After, stroll around the Haight, take in the local scenery, and grab a drink at Kezar's.
