THE BEST VIEWS IN SAN FRANCISCO

We owe all of these views to our local guides, Phil & Cali. They were so awesome at showing us all the city and coast had to offer during our stay!

  1. If you are lucky to catch a parking spot, walk out to the Battery Spencer viewpoint of the Golden Gate Bridge! That area is actually full of viewpoints, so you can’t go wrong. For this particular view you need to park at a public restroom right off the road and then walk out to a little ways before you see the bridge in all its beauty.

2. Grab a view from the top Lombard Street! The road made famous for a steep, one-block section with eight hairpin turns!

4. And finally, make sure to get a view from the water. We took a Harbor Sunset Cruise and it was my favorite way to end our day! There is nothing like seeing the Golden Gate bridge light up at night!
