The Summit of Twin Peaks

The Twin Peaks are two hills in the center of San Francisco that offer stunning views of the city. Get there in the evening to shoot the sunset, and then hang about for some those twinkly night shots.

444 Market Street

For the architecture lovers, in and around 444 Market Street is the place to be.

Sutro Baths

Sutro Baths were a formerly privately owned swimming pool complex, built in the late 19th century. The building housing the baths burned down in 1966 and was abandoned, but can still be visited for some stunning photos.

Bay Bridge

The Golden Gate Bridge’s smaller cousin is definitely worth a visit. Right now they’ve strapped quite a few LED lights to it to create a groovy light show at night. Read more about the Bay Bridge lights.

Dutch Windmill

Visit a little slice of Holland, with the Dutch Windmill and the nearby tulip gardens.

Japanese Tea Garden

When you’re finished with your Dutch fix, visit the Japanese Tea Garden for a slice of Japanese dessert.

Union Square Park

Capture the hustle and bustle of Union Square Park.

Palace of Fine Arts Theatre

In the Marina District, the Palace of Fine Arts was originally constructed for the 1915 Panama-Pacific Exposition in order to exhibit works of art presented there.

Lombard Street

Another iconic landmark of San Francisco, very fun to drive down in GTA San Andreas!
