Around Twin Peaks

Car traffic picks up on the way to the top of the peaks, so get ready for a brisk walk for amazing views. The Twin Peak Park has 64 acres with natural hiking trails to explore after photographing the city. After the hike back down, stop for an afternoon drink in nearby Noe Valley.

Though Twin Peaks doesn't have it's own bars, they are literally a stone throw away in nearby Castro, where you can visit Twin Peaks Tavern, on Castro Street, where the crowd is a bit subdued but the Irish coffee and people watching are worth the trip. Actually most people on evenings here, make the trek to the top of the hills and gaze at the city lights. Nighttime picnics are not uncommon.

An influx of people, especially on weekends, seeking outdoor activities and scenic views from the hillsides. Increase with elevation adds cooler temps compared with the rest of the city. Families take advantage of the views by braving the traffic while others hike, walk, bike, the scenic route. Charming housing lends to an ethereal feel as they seem to cling to the sides of the hillsides.

Pizza, pasta, American, and Chinese. This isn't for extremely picky foodies, just good grub for great prices. Chan Chan Cafe Cubano, offers an interesting option with Cuban fare.

Housing organically follows the natural hillsides of this neighborhood with some of the most efficient modern condos, houses, and buildings of the city. New builds cohesively line the hills with a mix of 1960's architectural styles, both demanding fairly significant prices. And with views like they offer, who could argue?
