Twin Peaks San Francisco review

Twin Peaks is one of the highest points in the Bay Area at 922 ft. of elevation.Twin Peaks San Francisco                                         You do have to drive through neighborhoods to get there.twin peaks san francisco      Be ready for breathtaking views and a lot of tourists–I mean a lot–especially during the summer months! There are lot of huge tours buses that stop here on the regular and it can take a while to find a vacant parking spot but it’s worth the wait. Twin Peaks San Francisco      Every time that I have been here it’s been very windy but this last time was so super windy that it was hard for me to keep my footing going up the wooden steps that lead to the top of the peak. If you are going to climb to the top of the peaks be sure to wear athletic shoes. High heals won’t work, you might be able to get away with flip flops though.

My Quick Take: This is definitely a very “touristy” spot but if you want that breathtaking view then it is a must! Be prepared to to have to wait for a parking spot and perhaps use the restroom before you get there–those city bathrooms don’t look very fun!
