Must See: Twin Peaks!

This is part 2 of “Things I Showed my Parents“. After the Baths on Saturday, I took them to the top of Twin Peaks for the most incredible view of the city.

Twin Peaks is a pair of tall hills in the middle of San Francisco with funny-looking antennas antennae on top. According to wikipedia, the two hills are both about 922 feet high. From the top, you can see the golden gate bridge, the bay bridge, the transamerica building, st ignatius church, and everything else!

that's my apartment!

To get to the top, you will need a car. I saw people biking to the top, but they didn’t look like they were having fun. And there is no public transportation to the top. You’ll take Market St to 17th to Twin Peaks Blvd (north side) or Market to Portola to Twin Peaks Blvd (south side). The address is 501 Twin Peaks Blvd. GPS Coordinates 37°45′06″N 122°26′52″W. And if you go, take a jacket because it is windy at the top.

I follow a blog called California Photo Scout and he gives great information about how to photograph Twin Peaks. Check it out here!

I can see Twin Peaks from my living room! Some days, I can sit and watch the fog roll over the hill.
