San Francisco Sightseeing
Twin peaks is a recreation area and park near the center of San Francisco named for the two side-by-side hills that rise above the city. The road through and around the area brings you to the top where you're greeted to 360 degree vistas, often called the city's best view, including sights of the city and San Francisco Bay. After your drive to the top, take the walking path to the viewing areas—you can even traverse between the peaks to get a different view.
With much of the area remaining untouched, many plants and wildlife call this area home including the Mission Blue Butterfly, an endangered species which has a dedicated habitat on the hills. At the top you'll find Summit Reservoir which was built in 1954 to house water for the city's fire departments.
During your stay at The Metro Hotel, make time to drive up to the summit of Twin Peaks in San Francisco and take photos of our beautiful city, but be sure to bring a jacket as it gets windy.
