    Can get disgusting the amount of selfie sticks and selfies going on. But it's worth a look. Amazing views, good walk that's unique. Would of loved to have my bicycle here.

    You got to love this place! There are three different stops along the road, try the next one if the first is crowded 👍🏼 There is a lighthouse at the end of the road, keep driving!

    The trail is temporarily shut down to help preserve wildlife so you can't take the Batteries to Bluffs trail down to the water. That said, still some great sites!

    This used to be my favorite secret place. Now, everyone knows about it - for good reason. Check it out. When you do, at some point put your camera down and just soak it in.

    It's a great experience for kids and adults. Weekdays are the best days To beat crowds but it's a wonderful day out.

    Best place to take photos of Golden Gate Bridge. But you should take your beverage with you before you go there because there is no place that you can buy something.

    Awesome views of the golden gate. It's not a nice as the other side but either way it's a great place to look at the building.

    When you're done taking in the view, read up in the history of the coastal batteries and fortifications that are just below the lookout. Interesting stuff.

    Whatever time of the year you're traveling to SF, keep in mind the weather is so unpredictable it can be so so cold and windy!!!

    Bridge is beautiful, however my car was broken into, so watch out, apparently san francisco is famous for car window brake in.

    Absolutely amazing spot to take pictures at! There is a parking lot right off the highway to the left, but take a right at the stop sign instead and go down to the bigger parking lot! Better view too.
