We greatly enjoyed our hike to Bernal Heights. The view is fabulous! It's not crowded. It was a great way to spend a day with the family.

This neighborhood of San Francisco wins you over quickly. It is quiet, pretty, boasts great views of the city, and is devoid of tourists. One can spend an enjoyable day here,

Unable to sleep on our first night in SF, I googled the best place to see sunrise and Bernal Heights was one of the results. WHAT a result! We were too late for sunrise but MAN! what a breathtaking way to start our vacation?!? As it was early morning, we were able to park easily and, after a short but... More

There are a few interesting views and some places to eat, but this is more of a bedroom community and not a place to party.

I like this view of the San Francisco skyline from this park. It is a nice hike to get up to the summit but you are rewarded with a view of the city rarely photographed.

I am from Pennsylvania, and looked up cool things to do while visiting my daughter. We drove to "Billy Goat Hill", but one of the neighbors had cut the swing down. If we waited a week it might be back up. This place has lots of people with dogs. We thought we saw a wild one up there. So off... More

Easy drive to the park at the top of the hill. Use Waze. Park and get out to walk around the perimeter of the hill. There are lots of hikers and dog walkers there. You won't be alone! On a clear day you will see the Pacific, the entire city and the bay. I didn't try it on a foggy... More

We didn't expect that this is the best spot to view the whole landscape of San Fransisco when our son took us there. We had nice weather on the day and were rewarded with beautiful and spectacular views if San Fransisco. We could see Bay Bridge but not the Golden Gate Bridge as it was covered by the fog. This...

I had the clearest day and the view was incredible. You can see the whole of San Fran from up there and all the way to the Golden Gate Bridge. Bernal Heights is a lovely neighbourhood too with lots of nice cafes and shops too.
