Twin Peaks: Best Bay Area Views
At 922 feet in elevation, Twin Peaks offers amazing views of the Bay Area. It is a world-famous tourist attraction. Originally called “Los Pechos de la Choca” (Breasts of the Maiden) by early Spanish settlers, the two peaks provide postcard-worthy views!
Why visit? The breathtaking views are free! Less crowded than popular Coit Tower, it’s SF’s 2nd highest peak! In addition, the peaks are located in the city’s geographical center so the tag “Best View of the Bay Area” rings true. You can identify the peaks from almost anywhere in they city by the TV Tower which sits at the very top.
Rebecca’s Quick Tip:
The parking lot near the top offers a great view, but for the absolute experience – climb to the top of one of the peaks for the full 360° view.
