Route
“The best spot to overlook the city of San Francisco, specifically downtown. Unless you're an Iron Man athlete, you'll need some kind of motorized transport to get to the main overlook, which is Christmas Tree Point Road. If you notice that it's too foggy, then it's best to skip this spot since you may literally see nothing. So go for cloudy or clear days. Night view is the best, but only stop if you see that there's plenty of other tourists around since there has been some violent crimes during the dead of night at this location.”
